Workshop notes for Seeing Stars (Sylvia Critcher)

To make one basic star block you will need:

Background fabric (A) 4 squares cut @ 5”

8 squares cut @ 2 ¾”

Fabric B 4 squares cut @ 3 ½”

8 squares cut @ 2 ¾”

Fabric C 4 squares cut @ 3 ½”

8 squares cut @ 2 ¾”

Remember to use the offcuts of the fast-square triangle to use either in another quilt or in the border.

Sylvia guides us through how to make this simple block and she has designed this interesting table runner - approx 48"x32" - or you could raid your fabric stash to make an interesting scrap quilt.

Scrap Star Patchwork Block

The block itself is quite unusual as it takes four to make the star shine.

Easy for Beginners

Follow her simple steps which give you accurate sewing (and she uses up all the bits too so there is no waste!)

2012 is going to be quite a patriotic year with the Queen's Diamond Jubilee celebrations as well as the Olympics so you could give a thought to making the quilt in the patriotic colours of Red, White and Blue (which obviously applies to those of you in Russia as well as the USA).
