Floating Stars Wall Hanging

Just two blocks—a star block in two colorways and an hourglass block that gets rotated—team up in a wall hanging. Florals, prints, and a stripe from Floral Melody by Ro Gregg for Northcott Silks provide a soft color palette.

Assemble Star Blocks


1. Use a pencil to mark a diagonal line on wrong side of all cream print 3-3/8" squares.

2. Layer a marked cream print No. 1 square atop a light pink print 3-3/8" square. Sew together with two seams, stitching 1/4" on each side of drawn line (Diagram 1). Cut apart on drawn line to make two triangle units. Press each triangle unit open, pressing seams toward light pink print, to make two light pink triangle-squares. Each light pink triangle-square should be 3" square including seam allowances. Repeat to make eight light pink triangle-squares total.

3. Using marked cream print No. 1 squares and light aqua print 3-3/8" squares, repeat Step 2 to make 16 light aqua triangle-squares (Diagram 2).

4. Using marked cream print No. 1 squares and aqua floral 3-3/8" squares, repeat Step 2 to make eight aqua floral triangle-squares (Diagram 3).

5. Referring to Diagram 4 for color placement, lay out light pink, light aqua, and aqua floral triangle-squares in four rows. Sew together pieces in each row. Press seams in one direction, alternating direction with each row. Join rows to make Star Block A. Press seams in one direction. The block should be 10-1/2" square including seam allowances. Repeat to make a second Star Block A.

6.  Using cream print No. 2 instead of cream print No. 1, repeat steps 2–5 to make two B Star blocks.

7. Using marked cream print No. 3 squares and dark pink print 3-3/8" squares, repeat Step 2 to make four dark pink triangle-squares. Using marked cream print No. 3 squares and dark aqua print 3-3/8" squares, make eight dark aqua triangle-squares. Using marked cream print No. 3 squares and dark tan floral 33/8" squares, make four dark tan floral triangle-squares.

8. Referring to Diagram 5 and using dark pink print, dark aqua print, and dark tan floral triangle-squares, repeat Step 5, to make a Star Block C.
