Seeing Stars Sew Along Step 7


Step 7

6'' four patch block 
Block as it appears in the quilt.

Cutting:
Background fabric- cut two squares 3 ½’’ x 3 ½’’
Other fabric- cut two squares 3 ½’’ x 3 ½’’

Additional Cutting:  cut 3 ½’’ x 12 ½’’ filler strips 
ONLY if not already cut and set aside from step 1

This block and filler strips are perfect for using up scraps from previous steps!

Sewing:
Sew the squares into pairs. Sew the pairs together. Pinwheel press the seams.

Make 1 block for each panel.

Simple Variations of four patches with HST units

Options:
Use 2  or 4 half square triangles in the four patch as shown in the diagram.
Repeat any block from previous steps that you prefer.
Cut 6 ½’’ squares from focus fabric or background fabric if you prefer.

Make star blocks, or add any block you like that finishes 6’’. 

Looking Ahead:
This set of blocks will complete all of the units needed for this quilt. Now is a good time to 'catch up' on any blocks that might still be incomplete. Now is also a good time to start sorting blocks. Group one of each block (plus filler strip) into groups in preparation for assembling our panels next month. We are in the home stretch now!!!

Please post a photo of your blocks to the group Facebook page (link) and tag it with #seeingstarssewalong and #butterflythreadsquilting

or send a photo to me at
Butterflythreadsquilting (at) gmail.com and I will post it for you!

  2. Thank you for this - I love this quilt and have been diligently saving the files as I do want to make it - it will be a perfect way to use some of my scraps. I'm hoping that once I get a few other ufos finished I'll be able to make a start!
