Six Halves Make a Whole Starburst Book By Susan Knapp and Mary Jane Mattingly
Take a look at some traditional 8in quilt blocks, add six half yard cuts of fabric in two colour families plus a light and medium fabric and you are well on your way to a great 64in x 80in lap quilt. A pattern for a table runner topper from the pieces left from the setting blocks is also included.
'Today's quilting industry is an artistically charged atmosphere filled with new ideas, products and beautiful fabrics to inspire all of us. Using these new trends in colour and design gives us a starting point for many of our patterns. But sometimes, it is fun to look back.
In Six Halves Make a Whole Starburst, we give you a sampling of 8? blocks that our grandmothers-and maybe even their mothers-used in their quilts. This versatile quilt starts with 6 half yard cuts, three each from two colour families. Adding two lighter accents makes this quilt burst with excitement. As a bonus, you can make a wallhanging or table topper from pieces you have left.'
