BOM 2021: Star #6

Another month – another star!

Cutting
All the measurements include a ¼ inch (7,5 mm) seam allowance.

From the blue fabric cut
6 squares 2⅜ x 2⅜ inches (6,5 x 6,5 cm) cut once diagonally
4 squares 2 x 2 inches (5,25 x 5,25 cm) cut once diagonally

From the pink fabric cut
8 squares 2⅜ x 2⅜ inches (6,5 x 6,5 cm) cut once diagonally

From the darkblue background fabric cut
10 squares 2⅜ x 2⅜ inches (6,5 x 6,5 cm) cut once diagonally
4 squares 2 x 2 inches (5,25 x 5,25 cm) cut once diagonally
8 squares 2 x 2 inches (5,5 x 5,5 cm)

Sewing
Join the larger blue triangles along the long side with darkblue triangles to make 12 squares. Press and cut off the dog ears.

Join 8 pink triangles along the long side with darkblue triangles to make 8 squares. Press and cut off the dog ears.

Join the small blue and darkblue triangles exactely as shown in the picture below. The result is four pieces and four mirrored pieces. Press.

Join the blue-darkblue triangles along the long side with a pink triangle – you get 8 squares. Press and cut off the dog ears.

Now you have only squares. Lay them out (near your sewing machine) as shown in the picture below. Double check that everything is exactely as it should be.

Sew the squares into rows.

Sew the rows together to get the finished block.

Take 4 of the strips 11 x 1 inches (28 x 2,5 cm) that you cut from the background fabric previously (see introduction to the BOM here) and sew 2 of them to opposite sides of your block. They are a little bit too long – shorten them to the block size. Sew the 2 remaining strips to the other sides of the block and shorten if necessary. Finished!

I would love to see your finished star-blocks. Please post them in the comments at TheQuiltingSpace’s Facebook page, tag me on Instagram @thequiltingspace and/or use the hashtag #thequiltingspace.

See you in July for star #7.
