Deb was asked by the Vermont Quilt Festival to create a quilt for their 2014 Raffle. She wanted the design to be unique and different for that very special organization, and Starget was born. She hadn’t planned on writing a pattern for it, but there were so many requests she just couldn’t let her customers down! Starget uses 4 different tools, and while each of the units is easy to make, some of the units have several color combinations so organization is key. If you pay a little bit of attention and follow Deb’s tips for organization you ‘ll have a beautiful quilt that’s well worth the effort!
The Wing Clipper is a must have tool if you are making Flying Geese units for your quilt. This tool, and the associated Fast Flying Geese construction technique, allow you to make four finished units from five squares. The best part is that each unit is constructed slightly oversized so each can be trimmed to a perfect size with perfect seam placement once the sewing and pressing are complete by using the Wing Clipper tool. You can see the tool in action on our free online video demonstration below. Every single unit will be exactly right every time. Now who ever thought that would happen with Flying Geese units?!?!
