Michelle’s design puts a modern spin on the typical Storm at Sea quilt layout. Michelle uses twelve gradating colors (six colors in two different tones) to give this project a calm, smooth feeling. If selecting the throw or double size, this quilt works great with solid, tone-on-tone, or batik fabrics. If selecting the king, consider some large prints or florals! The pattern includes three size options, and you will be amazed how easily this quilt comes together with the right tools!

Galaxy Quilt With the V-Block Tool, #27106-T

Galaxy Quilt With the V-Block Tool – #27106-T

Day: Thursday, 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Location: Heritage Ballroom B

Level: Intermediate

Plus Handout Fee


Deb’s Galaxy project is a beautiful alternating block design with three different size options. Students will make two types of pieced blocks and put them together like a checkerboard. Careful color placement and different angles created with the V-Block tool result in what seems to be interlocking circles, yet all seams are straight. What a fun optical illusion! Students can expect to complete samples of both the required blocks during class time.

Michelle designed this quilt combining two of her favorite quilt blocks: the Rambler and V Star. This quilt literally sparkles! If you collect or love fat quarters, this is the quilt to make. It makes fabulous usage of fat quarters, and it is perfect for any color background. For the most sparkle, go with a high contrast between your background fabric and fat quarters. Michelle used a green accent fabric throughout her chain; you can select any color, but try to use your accent color minimally within the fat quarters so that it pops! You’ll have so much fun playing with color and making your fabrics shine in this beautiful quilt.
