I call this a variation on the Ohio Star block because in the corners I added half square triangles (HSTs). I liked it because it allowed me to add a little more color to the block and it allowed me to add more visual interest. This block is part of my Vintage Christmas Sampler…which I am really hoping will be done before Christmas!
Get the know how after the jump!
You will need the following materials –
- large scraps of three different materials
- 8.5 inch quilting square
- rotary cutter
- pen to mark on fabric
- basic sewing supplies
Cut your fabric:
Make your Quarter Square Triangles (QSTs)
Next, make your half square triangle using the white and green 5″ squares. Using the same method from the QSTs, mark on the white fabric – corner to corner, place white and green fabrics right sides together, and sew 1/4″ on either side of marked line. For Half Square Triangles – you only cut ONE time.
