Participants created their own singularly beautiful work of faceted light using the same single-foundation piecing techniques I use to create my own “diamond quilts.”
MJ provided a pattern exclusively designed for the Lighthouse Quilt Guild. Students learned to chart the design onto freezer paper; code each piece for color, location, and adjacency; position template pieces onto fabric to achieve the desired light effects; and ultimately create their own unique study in faceted color. Participants left the class with an 18” block that can later be hand or machine quilted at home.
The samples below are quite impressive. If anyone else would like me to post a picture please send it to me. Wendy at
