Jan Krentz: One Block Wonder

  • Boca Raton Community Center (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Jan Krentz is best known for her work in 8-pointed Lone Stars and related patterns. This workshop features Jan’s decades-long quilt making expertise and clever construction techniques for the popular stack-cut “One Block Wonder” and “Stack ‘n’ Whack” quilts.

The quilt above was created by layering six identical 24” repeats of one printed fabric (Harajuku Lady by Alexander Henry), cutting through all the layers to create identical stacks of equilateral 60⁰ triangles. A second fabric was used to create a narrow black fabric trim embellishment border to separate the pieced center from the (3rd fabric) outside border. Jan will also teach her 4-patch Stack n' Whack technique shown in the Park Landscape photo below. A technique using panels which are cut and then blended together.
