*Note: Always press to the color fabric unless otherwise noted.
**Note: Half squares triangles (HST) allow plenty of room for trimming. To make HSTs with some trimming space, reduce square size by 1/4". To make HSTs without trimming space, reduce square size by 1/2".
Step 1: Make the HSTs. Lay one 3 3/8" white fabric square on a 3 3/8" color fabric square right sides together. Mark a diagonal line along the squares, then sew 1/4" away from both sides of the line. Refer to the next 3 photos.
Cut along the line. Press open and trim to measure 2 1/2" square. Repeat with the remaining 3 3/8" squares to make a total of 16 HSTs. Sew the next 3 photos.
Step 2: Make the stars. Sew together 4 - 2 1/2" white fabric squares, 1 - 2 1/2" color fabric square, and 4 HSTs per star. Refer to the next 4 photos. Press to the half square triangles.
Step 3: Make the nine patch blocks. Sew together 5 - 2 1/2" color fabric squares and 4 - 2 1/2" squares per nine patch to make a total of 5 nine patch blocks. Press to the color fabric squares.
Step 4: Assemble the block. Referring to the next 5 photos, sew together the nine patch blocks and star blocks. Press to the nine patch blocks.
