Each designer will share a Star Block tutorial using our new Dream Basic, PLUS a giveaway of the fabrics they used! For the grand finale, there’s a fat-quarter bundle of the entire 30-color collection up for grabs. That’s SIX chances to win a nice chunk of this fabulous new fabric!

    I’m planning to make Kim Brackett’s star block using the red, yellow, light blue, green, black and grey fabrics. Love that block. And love those fabrics.

    Thank you so much for this learning opportunity! The new fabric line is just fabulous! I discovered new ways to use color, and I’m sure I’ll be Dreaming of Stars for weeks to come! I loved all the blocks made for this blog tour, but my favorites are by the two Kims, Kim Brackett and Kimberly Einmo.

    I have visited all of the web sites – the fabric is beautiful & the stars make me want to get out my fabric and try every one of them.

    Great tutorial! I appreciate the chance to see your special rulers in use since I tend to know only how to do things the traditional way. I see it is time to learn how to use some of those new tools. My favorite color is ORANGE. Well, today, it is. My favorite color changes throughout the week. Keeps me busy filling my stash!

    Kimberly, I really like that double friendship star, and the deft blue is my favorite color. We are doing a black/white/gray block exchange, and this might be a good block for that (although I much prefer these wonderful colors!)
