A while back Mary, sorry I don’t know if she has a blog, emailed me asking how to make this block. I promised her a tute. I’ve been very slow getting to it but as promised here it is.
You will need 36- 1 1/2″ squares, 4- 4″ squares cut on diagonal once for star points, a 7 1/4″ square cut on diagonal twice for flying geese units with star points and 4- 3 1/2″ squares for corners around star.
First sew your 36- 1 1/2″ square into 6 rows of six. Press these in opposite directions so the rows can but up against each other.
Sew rows together to make 36 patch.
Sew one of the 4″ triangles to a 7 1/4″ triangle as shown. Do this with remaining 3- 7 1/4″ triangles.
Next sew the remaining 4″ triangles to the opposite side of the 7 1/4″ triangles to make 4 flying geese units.
Arrange units into star as shown. Sew into rows. Then sew rows together.
Your block should measure 12 1/2″. I made 12 for this quilt. I then made two piano keyboard borders that measured 48 1/2″ and two that measured 60 1/2″. Then I used thistute to make the mitered corners. Hope this helps Mary. Let me know when you make yours. I would love to see it.
