Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The beautiful Mariner's Compass star block has long been considered the province of the advanced quilter. Now quilt teacher, designer, and writer Gail Garber shows, in detail, how to cut and sew this long-time favorite, making it accessible to more quilters. She gives excellent advice for selecting fabrics, using templates or paper-foundation piecing, and cutting and stitching these magnificent stars. Color photos of exquisite quilts made by Gail and others are sure to inspire.

Quilters who know basic quiltmaking techniques will enjoy making the sample projects. For the more adventurous, Gail provides excellent information for drafting your own circular stars and using them to create quilt designs. Noted for her Flying Geese and star quilts, she also shows how to draft curved ribbons of Flying Geese and circular borders.
