The "stars are out" at the Nine Quarter Circle Ranch in Gallatin Gateway, MT, as Alex demos some clever—and easy—variations on the traditional Sawtooth Star block, and Ricky shows how to piece her Lone-Star-based Montana Star. (Cutting directions for the Montana Star will be available on the TQS website.) This "stellar" show also features a visit to Valentine, NE, where Florentine Blue Thunder shares his amazing Lakota Star quilts and Vi Colombe (from the Rosebud Reservation in Mission, SD) shows us her stunning Circular Stars. Can't get more star-studded than that!
