Aunt Eliza's Star



Hi!  If you enjoy this blog, please become
a follower, I need to know if anyone is out
there using these tutorials!  And pop on over
to the American Homestead blog and see what
is going on in my life.  All the best!  ~ Ellen
 
 
We are quilting along with Barbara Brackman's
Block of the Month, Dixie Diary.
 
 
In early May when this block came out,
I was hiking up to mountaintop castles
in Germany,  Now I'm back home and
thought, better late than never...
 
 
Fabric Requirements:
 
Fabric A: Blue
1 - 6 1/8'' square
 
Fabric B: White print
4 - 4 1/2'' squares
1 - 5 1/4'' square, cut on the diagonal twice
 
Fabric C: Red
2 - 5 1/4'' squares, cut on the diagonal twice
 
 
Step 1:
Sew the long side of a Fabric C Triangle to one
side of a Fabric B square.  Press seam to the
Fabric C and trim the dog ears.
 
Then repeat this step to a side right next to this
on the Fabric B square as shown.  Press seam to
the Fabric C and trim.
 
Make 4 of these units.
 
 
Step 2:
Sew a Fabric B triangle to each side of
the above unit.  Press seams to the Fabric B.
Make 2 of these triangle units.
 
 
Step 3:
Sew a unit from step 1 to opposite sides
of  the Fabric A square. Press seams to
the center.
 
 
Assemble Block:
 
Sew a triangle unit from Step 2 to each side
of the unit from Step 3, matching seams.
Press seams to the outside.
Square to 12 1/2''.
 
 
I added the border and applique star to mine.
