The Fiber Arts Center of the Eastern Shore Announces
“The Lone Starburst Wall Hanging Class”
The Lone Starburst Wall Hanging is a versatile pattern that allows you to try out all different color arrangements. This scrappy sample with vibrant colors outlined with white is dramatic.
The wall hanging is approximately 21" X 22" when finished with the cornerstone stars and borders. The cornerstone stars are also paper pieced. The method used to teach this starburst prevents you from needing to remove the paper when finished! The wall hanging can also be made with a red, white and blue theme. Students need to have some familiarity with paper piecing as well as an advanced beginning level of sewing.
