See Sawtooth Stars Through an Ombré Lens

Ombré fabrics turn simple patterns and blocks into colorful, stunning projects — the color shifts from light to dark over the length of the fabric. A master of color and fabric play, Jennifer Sampou has been sharing her expertise in color with students around the world. In this course, you'll walk away with a deeper understanding of color and value through ombré fabrics. Jennifer also teaches you how to make double sawtooth star blocks with precision. 

The Dawn Star Quilt celebrates the joy of our colorful skies above, and you can create one for yourself! Jennifer teaches useful color principles and value, then shows you how to make double sawtooth star blocks precisely. Use multiple ombré fabrics and capture dynamic movement as you explore foreground and background and the blurred lines in play. When you work on the secondary star, Jennifer touches on improv as the star lets the fabric do the work!
