Week 9 - Large Star

The large star is the final block and will be in the centre of your quilt. It uses simple techniques but is really affective.


Seam Allowance: ¼”

Unfinished size: 12½" Square

Finished size (when sewn into your quilt): 12" x 12"



CUTTING

Width x Height (cut one unless otherwise stated)


Green

1 - 4 ¼” Square

4 – 2” Squares


Baubles

4 - 2 5/8”

4 – 3 ½” Squares

1 – 7 ½ Squares


Blue

3 ½” Square

4 – 4 1/8”


INSTRUCTIONS


1. You need four large flying geese. We will use the no waste method. Get your large white square and 2 blue small ones. Make a line diagonally from one corner to the other. Sew a ¼” line either side of the line. Cut down the line and press both sides open.

2. Get another one of the blue squares and draw another diagonal line. Place it in the corner of the white square and sew either side of the line. Cut and press open. Repeat on the other side. Trim to 3 ½” x 6 ½”.

3. Repeat steps one and two with the small white squares and larger green square. Trim to 2” x 3 ½”.

4. Piece the the smaller star first with the flying geese, green squares and blue square.

5. Sew your rows together.

6. Then sew your three rows together.

Your large star is complete! I also think this would make a beautiful matching cushion.
