The 2018 NZP Fat Quarter Mystery is a mystery no more! Team Nancy Zieman is honored to celebrate Nancy Zieman’s legacy with this quilt titled, She’s Our Star. Team Nancy Zieman appreciates everyone of you who have tuned in each month, on the third Saturday, to see a new “She’s Our Star” block tutorial revealed.

Many of Nancy Zieman’s readers, fans, and followers shared their blocks each month with the NZP Team. With so many beautiful quilt blocks shared throughout 2018, we’d love to see your finished top or quilt. When you have your quilt top ready, please email your pictures to [email protected]. Your quilt may be selected as a feature in an upcoming blog post.

If you’ve missed a block, no worries! You can always find block patterns from any of Nancy Zieman’s Block of the Month programs, FREE and linked in the right-hand side bar of this blog.

Note From Team Nancy Zieman      All seams allowances are scant 1/4″ unless otherwise stated.


 Prepare Blocks

  • Press and trim all quilt blocks to measure 17-1/2″ square.
1. Place two Farmhouse Floral Cream Shiplap setting triangles on opposite edges of square. Match right sides and align the triangle’s longest edge with the square’s edge. Be sure to center the fabric square within the triangle’s longest edge.
Note From Team Nancy Zieman     Notice that triangles will extend past the cut square about 1/4″ on each end.
  • Stitch using a scant 1/4″ seam allowance.
  • Open and press seam allowances toward the triangle.
  • Repeat these steps by adding two additional triangles on the remaining sides of the square.
  • Trim any small triangles, often called “Dog Ears,” using a pair of scissors or your rotary cutting tools.
  • Open and press seam allowances toward the triangles.
  • Repeat steps for all twelve blocks.

2. Arrange blocks in the order that they will be sewn together leaving spaces for Farmhouse Floral White Shiplap sashing strips.

3. Complete sashing.

  • Prepare block rows—position Farmhouse Floral White Shiplap sashing strips between blocks at left and right edges of each of the blocks.

  • Join corner squares to short ends of sashing sections, right sides together.
  • Join sashing rows to block rows.
  • Position sashing rows between block rows at top and bottom edges of the quilt.
  • Join sashing rows to block rows, right sides together.
