"Learn how to sew a Variable Star Quilt Block during week 7 of our Spring Block of the Week! Last week we learned about the Friendship Star Quilt Block. This Variable Star is also an easy star block and is perfect for a beginning quilter!! Also learn a technique for making a square tulip block within the directions for this week’s block!! This Variable Star Quilt Block uses squares and tulip squares to form the star. There are a lot of different star quilt blocks. Some are very intricate, but this is one of the easy stars to sew. The finished block will measure 12 ½” x 12 ½” square. "
