Today is the very last block in our little quilt along!
It is called “variable star” and is just like the first block...
Except for the color choices.
You will need (from top left ...counter clockwise)
One (1) 3 1/2” square - medium pink
Four (4) 3 1/2” squares - background
One (1) 4 3/4” square - background
One (1) 4 3/4” square - medium pink
Two (2) 4 3/4” squares - dark pink
Take all four larger squares (4 3/4”)
Stack right side up.
Cut twice diagonally.
Each set of triangles makes ONE hourglass block.
Sew four hourglass blocks together.
Trim to 3 1/2” x 3 1/2”
Arrange them into this beautiful star block!
If you’ve been following along you will have 20 star blocks.
We’ll be adding sashing next.

Hi Beth, I have enjoyed creating the pink stars quilt with you this summer. I actually made two quilts. With being introduced to one quilt block a week I decided to use two different color combinations. Green and Yellow and Blue and yellow with a little extra color now and again. All fabric used is from my stash, nothing new was purchased. I will be quilting them this next week. Thank you for making this easy and fun to complete. I was hoping to attach pictures of the pieced tops but not sure how to accomplish this. I really loved making each block. It is not perfect but it is completed. Thank youReplyDelete
