Educator and long-time quilter Ellen Graf joins Mary to go through the assembly of the “Super Star” block from Quilty May June 2013. A digital pattern and quilt kit are available for this quilt. Ellen suggests using a design wall to audition fabrics and organize your pieces. For more fabulous quilting tips and ideas visit or watch more episodes at or on DVD!

  1. Hi Mary, I watched an early episode of Quilty, #13, and then this one #314. I just wanted to say how much you have grown up between the two! But I also noticed you were wearing a wedding band in the early episode, but not in the later one. Are you still married? Just curious! I love your shows and how much fun you are. You always seem so relaxed. It’s nice to see. And by keeping the segments short, they are easy to watch when you don’t have a lot of time. Keep up the good work!

  5. […] I do love the classic Ribbon Star block, but I also love its adaptations as well. For those looking for little more of a challenge, but wanting to keep the elegance of this quilt block, Katie Clark Blakesley’s Super Star wall hanging is the perfect choice. Better yet, Mary Fons and Ellen Graf get together for a video tutorial on how to make Super Star. […]
