Deborah Miller created a craze with her Folded Star technique and has modified it to create stunning ornaments. What a fun, easy method!
The pattern includes a 12 page booklet with instructions for three different styles – all using a printed interfacing foundation so placement is easy! The r:ibbon can be 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 inches wide, The pattern includes two interfacing templates. A six pack can be purchased separately.
What a fun family project! Everything is expected to arrive later this month!
I saw Bethany Miller demonstrate this technique at QuiltCon and was instantly impressed! I couldn’t wait to demo it at my next class and it was a huge hit! Here are two different pics for the pattern. I personally saw the quilt on the right a loved it in all solids!
These blocks are perfect for layer cakes. The concept? Use the template to trace the exact shapes on a heavyweight freezer paper such as the CutRite brand.
This paper is thick so it can be used multiple times without damaging the shape. Guesstimate the seam allowance – I used a rotary cutter – and follow her simple instructions to machine sew perfect blocks in literally a matter of minutes!
Then the blocks are all trimmed to 7 1/2″ – which explains why the CGR7 has suddenly become so popular!
This is the best demo I have seen in a long time! Bethany Miller is young, enthusiastic, and thinks outside of the box. Please help me get her name out there so she gets the credit for developing a technique that will have everyone sewing perfect curves. I am telling you, it is THAT good! Be sure to have the pattern, template, freezer paper, and ruler available because they will want it all!
