Assemble Star Blocks

1.    Aligning marked matching points, sew light green print A and A reversed triangles to a red-orange print B triangle to make a star point unit (Diagram 1). Press seams toward light green print pieces. The unit should be 2-1⁄2" square including seam allowances. Repeat to make 52 star point units total.

2.    Referring to Diagram 2, sew together five plum geometric print 2-1⁄2" squares and four star point units in three rows. Press seams toward plum geometric print. Join rows to make a star block center. Press seams toward outer rows. The star block center should be 6-1⁄2" square including seam allowances. Repeat to make 13 star block centers total.

3.    Aligning marked matching points, sew light green print C and C reversed pieces to a red-orange print B triangle to make a side unit (Diagram 3). Press seams toward light green print pieces. The side unit should be 6-1⁄2 ×2-1⁄2" including seam allowances. Repeat to make 52 side units total.

4.    Referring to Diagram 4, sew together four plum geometric print 2-1⁄2" squares, four side units, and a star block center in three rows. Press seams toward side units. Join rows to make a star block. Press seams toward outer rows. The block should be 10-1⁄2" square including seam allowances. Repeat to make 13 star blocks total.
