Four-Pointed Star Chain

Go country with muted, small-scale prints from the Folk Art Favorites collection by The Buggy Barn for Henry Glass & Co. Create an Irish Chain effect with careful placement of the squares in the five star and four 25-Patch blocks. A two-color checkerboard border provides a neat frame to the table topper.
