    I am in the process of arranging my work and always organizing.
    So I will share some of it here.
    This is a coil basket and a Fast Star quilt. Fast Stars are often used by Native American plains Indians for give-a-ways.

    The fast star quilt is beautiful but it doesn't look fast to me- the basket is awesome too!

    The fast star really is fast, it can be doe in a day from start to finish. With machine quilting an easy day. I have not taught it for a long time but when I did it was a 6 hour workshop, most students would be at least half done by the end of the day, I think class is both good and slows you down.

    I just went and looked to see if there are any directions, the only ones used the search 'fast star' I have a book that has directions in it, if you are interested. I will also try to figure out a way to post a diagram. You should be able to make it from that.

    I am the author
    Linda Parker - Montana Star Quits
    - the name of this quilt is 'Fast star'

    I am going to try to figure out how to post a diagram for those of you who are interested.

    Give me a couple of weeks to think about that. I am going to figure out how to get a diagram up. It is an easy quilt.
