The three day class with Victoria Findlay Wolfe held lots of challenges and new techniques such as Y seams.
I started with having to make fabric. Some people had quilt tops they hated and cut them up. Some had orphan blocks. I sewed 6" squares and 6" x 12" rectangles together to make it big enough to cut out the star pattern.
