"Learn how to sew an Ohio Star Quilt Block during week 11 of our Spring Block of the Week! Only 2 more blocks after this one and our Spring Block of the Month series will be complete!! Then we’ll take all of the blocks from weeks 1-13 and make them into a quilt!!! The Ohio Star is one of my favorite quilt blocks! The history of this quilt block dates back to quilts created in the 1800’s. But because this block can use small scraps of fabrics, the Ohio Star Quilt Block gained popularity during the Depression era of the 1930’s. The Ohio Star quilt block appears in Depression era and post-Depression quilts. This quilt block was a popular pattern among Scottish and Irish immigrants in the Midwest and frequently used by Amish quilters. "
