I live very close to a Veteran's Hospital.
During the next month I'd like to make a quilt or TWO to donate!
Would YOU like to help????
If you're interested please send me
a 12 1/2" UNFINISHED star...
ANY kind of star!!!
Using the colors:
blue, white, red or yellow.
ANY SHADE....print or solid....dark or light.
You know me....
I'm not fussy.
I made an OHIO STAR
If you don't want to have to think about
WHAT KIND of star to make...
YOU can make one like I DID!!!
FOUR 4 1/2" squares using LIGHT fabric
ONE 4 1/2" square using Dark fabric
TWO 5 1/2" squares using Dark fabric.
ONE 5 1/2" square using light fabric.
ONE 5 1/2" square using medium fabric.
Using your 5 1/2" Squares
Lay ONE dark on a light
ONE dark on a medium.
Draw diagonal lines.
Sew on each side of line.
You will have TWO of these sets.
(PHOTO shows only ONE set)
Place one on top of the other other...
making sure that the DARK half is on OPPOSITE sides.
Draw a diagonal line on each set.
FOUR nice little hourglass blocks.
Trim them to 4 1/2".
Arrange like this.
Sew it together.
Your OHIO STAR should measure 12/ 1/2".
