Mary Fons was fascinated with Liz Porter’s quilt Milky Way, but wanted to put her own spin on it. Mary and Porter started out with the same pattern and with a couple of minor changes, the results are very different. Mary and her guest Liz Porter show you how to design your own version of this quilt and demonstrate cutting squares and triangles from the same strip. Mary Fons’ quilt, Andromeda, is available as a free pattern download on Fons & Porter’s website and is featured in Easy Quilts Fall ’12. Liz Porter’s quilt, Milky Way, is featured in Love of Quilting May/June ’12. You can find the Milky Way pattern grid at FonsandPorter.com.
