If you have ever seen the Laundry Basket Quiltsbooth at quilt shows, you’re surrounded by Edyta’s delicate strips, tiny blocks, and most of all, her pieced eight-point stars. While they may look difficult, they are impressive AND achievable. With some practice, you’ll be churning out her eight-point stars like a pro! We’ve posted a new video featuring her methods to master this block, starting with a basic Y-seam, then a Beginner Eight-Point Star, and finally a more Intricate Eight-Point Star.
Now apply this Y-seam to this Beginner Eight-Point Star block with Y-seams and download the pattern as well!
Try out Edyta’s techniques and let us know how they work for you!
Thank you…I am working on a project that needs "Y" seams. This was a perfect video and explanation!
I am really enjoying these video's. Now I can't wait to try this out. I have most of Edyta's books and can't wait for her new one to come out. She makes 8 point stars done by machine look so simple. Thanks so much for sharing these video's.
I would like to advance my sewing and quilting skills and learn to piece Y seams, curves, etc. i will bookmark this tutorial thanks!
Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant! Edyta, you're a supersdtar!! x
