Welcome to week 13 of the quilt along! This is the last star-we made it!! It's been fun for me to watch the quilts come together in different color schemes with out all the work of doing it myself. :)
For this week's star:
cut one square 5 1/4" from the background fabric
cut it in half on the diagonal, twice, to make 4 quarter square triangles
cut 4 squares 4 1/2" from the background fabric
cut two squares 5 1/4" one from a medium and one from a dark fabric
cut each of those on the diagonal, twice, to make 4 quarter square triangles
cut 2 squares 4 7/8" one from the medium and one from the dark fabric
cut each square in half on the diagonal once, to make half square triangles
layout as shown
there is a great tip here for sewing the triangles to the corner square
and square up to 12.5".
Isn't this a great block? I think it's one of my favorites. (Do I say that every week?)
Thanks, as always, for quilting along with me.
