Assemble Star Point Units


1. Join a dark print small triangle and a light print small triangle to make a triangle-square (see Diagram 2). Press the seam allowance toward the dark print triangle. The pieced triangle-square should measure 2-5 ⁄8" square, including the seam allowances. Repeat to make a total of 108 triangle-squares.

2. Referring to Diagram 3 for placement, lay out a triangle-square and two assorted light print small triangles. Join the pieces to make a light triangle unit. Press the seam allowances toward the triangle-square. Repeat to make a total of 36 light triangle units. Note: The long edge of each triangle unit is on the bias, so avoid stretching it out of shape while sewing.

3. Referring to Diagram 4, lay out a triangle-square and two assorted dark print small triangles. Join the pieces to make a dark triangle unit. Press the seam allowances toward the dark print triangles. Repeat to make a total of 72 dark triangle units.

4. Referring to Diagram 5, lay out one light triangle unit, two dark triangle units, and a light print large triangle. Sew together the pieces in pairs. Press the seam allowances in opposite directions. Then join the pairs to make a star point unit. Press the seam allowance in one direction. The pieced star point unit should measure 6-1⁄2" square, including the seam allowances. Repeat to make a total of 36 star point units.
