English Paper Pieced Variations on the Moravian Star Class

In this class we will cover two different variations on the lovely Moravian Star. We will go over cutting, basting and sewing methods for these lovely ornaments.

It is recommended that you have made at least one regular star first as we will focus more on the different techniques needed for these variants, rather than basic techniques.

Sample of the ornament variations we will be making:

Supplies needed:

Variation 1:
1 1/2 inch Triangle paper pieces (60) - Sweet Home Quilting has ordered these

Fabric - depends on your preferences. I used 5 different fabrics fussy cut for motifs from fat quarters. You can use as few or as many as you like, just keep in mind that you will need more if you plan to fussy cut.

Variation 2:
1/2 inch Pentagon paper pieces (12) - Sweet Home Quilting has ordered these
1/2 inch Jewel paper pieces (60) - Sweet Home Quilting has ordered these

Fabrics - I used a Charm pack to make a scrappy look for this ornament. You can choose as many or as few fabrics as you like, just keep in mind that you may need more for fussy cutting. It is also recommended that you take your paper pieces when choosing fabric to ensure you don’t choose a design that is too large.

Other supplies include:

Fabric Glue Pen
80 weight thread to match fabric
Size 10 milliners needles or size 11 Milliners needle
Pencil, or fabric marking pen
8 inches 3/8 inch coordinating ribbon

Optional: small cutting mat, small ruler, rotary cutter, thimblesewtites or wonder clips, and any other supplies that make your sewing easier.

Instructor Bio: Patricia Morgan Hi, I'm a homeschooling mother of 7. My kids range in age from 21 to 6. We live on a small, 40 acre, homestead just across the state line in Elora, Tn. We raise dairy goats, beef cattle, pigs and assorted poultry. While I had learned to sew a little as a child, my time in a college theatre costume shop is really where I developed my love of fabric. Over the years I have learned garment construction, corsetry, bag making, doll sculpting and eventually quilting. I enjoy both hand and machine piecing, as well as, finishing my quilts on my long arm.
