We are quilting along with Barbara
Brackman's Block of the Week,
8 1/2" x 3 3/16" strips in either
2 or 3 different fabrics.
Scrap fabric for star
Sew the 3 strips together as shown.
Press seams to the darker fabric.
Square to 8 1/2".
For my block, I printed out the template
from the pdf and then enlarged it 112%.
I then fussy cut pieces using the template
and machine pieced the star unit on the
right. I then trimmed 1/4" from all sides.
I cut the star on the left to the same size.
I then trimmed an additional 1/4" from
the fussy cut star.
I hand stitched the fussy cut star to
the larger star using a blanket stitch.
Then I stitched this unit to the 8 1/2"
I added an additional circle to the
center of the star and stitched that
in place using the blanket stitch.
