|Tutorial for a 12 inch finished Mini Lone Star|
I really like how this mini Lone Star block turned out - Mine's not perfect, but still, oh so cute. I think a whole quilt of these would be beautiful. If you do not wish to piece the diamonds, you can use this tutorial for a LeMoyne Star block and get the same look with less piecing.
Mark each obtuse/large angle with an X one quarter inch from the edge.
Mark the background fabric triangles on the 90 degree corner and mark one corner of each of the squares 1/4 inch in.
Repeat for all four diamond pairs. This is what your block should look like at this point. Next sew two of the two diamond units together to form a four diamond unit. Remember to start sewing at the quarter inch X.
You Can Do It! :)
One June 8th we will start on our three weeks of "There-is-no-way-I-Can-Make-That!" blocks. Does anyone have any blocks they would like to nominate? We will definitely make a Mariner's Compass style block. My husband thinks they look cool and has been telling me I should make one for years and I have been responding with, "No way! Too hard! You make it." :)
What have you put off making because it was too hard?
