What's inside:

 

Here's the book you've been waiting for!  This is the ultimate how-to star quilt making book!  It's a publication that Diane Hill (Diane's Native American Star Quilts) has written especially for beginners, and it literally shows every step of the way about how to make a Native American star quilt of any size from baby size to king size.  But even if you are an experienced star quilt maker, you will still find lots of neat tips and shortcuts worth learning.

Brand new and hot off the press, the book was published in May 2007.  It has 64 pages and a large 8 1/2" X 11" format, with a great two-page Table of Contents.  It's lavishly illustrated throughout with big, easy-to-see photos, and the detailed step-by step instructions make learning a breeze.

The book contains full instructions for making two different baby size star quilts and two different queen size star quilts~~ and how to adapt them to make any size of star quilt that you want them to be.  Other topics in the book are how to put borders and length panels on your star quilt, and how to make a simple-as-pie binding to finish your quilt.  Suggestions are given for selecting the types of fabrics, battings, and backings for your quilt too, and Diane even tells you what her 12 favorite star quilt sewing tools are.

One of the best features of this book is its helpful TIPS section that's devoted entirely to the "closely guarded star quilt maker's secrets" that will help you meet any challenge and make a perfect star quilt to be proud of every time.

Here are some of the things covered in the TIPS section:

Got a VOLCANO in the center of your star?  There are FOUR WAYS to fix it!

Are you accidentally cutting off the star tips when you sew the border around the star?  The way to avoid this is so simple that you'll wonder why you never thought of it!

Have you made your own custom size star and now you don't know what size to cut the background squares and triangles to fit around the star?  There's an easy solution, no matter what size the star is!

 

Get ready for an extraordinary Native American star quilting adventure~~ THE EASY WAY!

As a THANK YOU for ordering her book, she will also mail you a free drawing ticket that will enter you in a drawing for a FREE STAR QUILT.
