Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Stars are an enduringly popular quilting motif, and this collection, curated by quilting grandes dames Fons and Porter, includes 27 different projects that prominently feature stars. The patterns range from beginner to advanced, techniques include basic patchwork and foundation paper piecing, and several of the patterns require plastic templates or specialized cutting tools. A variation of each design is given in a different color palette, reminding quilters that there's more than one way to look at a quilt pattern. VERDICT Like other books in the "Best of Fons & Porter" series, this is a good value that includes projects suitable for a variety of skill levels, as well as straightforward directions and expert advice.
