Not one of my favorite colors but it worked so well for this quilt. The long arm was done with ruler work and I used the tutorial that greenfairy quilts posted

    I usually have to have the gal behind the counter help me pick out my fabric and lots of times I don't care
  4. What kind of starch do you use?

Also, am I understanding correctly that it's a good idea to starch all fabric before cutting it as well as starch the backing before basting?
    Thanks so much!

    There are 2 star colors and one background.

    For a 48" star ONLY (no border or backing, but there will be enough for a scrappy binding):
    1 1/8 yard background
    3/4 yard star color A
    3/4 yard star color B
