Making the Star Blocks
1. Draw a diagonal line on the back side of one 3-1/8" F square. Place right sides together with one 3-1/8" C square. Sew 1/4" to each side of drawn line. Cut apart on line. Repeat to create sixteen half-square triangle units. Square to 2-3/4".
2. Draw a diagonal line on the back side of two 2-3/4" F squares. With right sides together, place one marked square at one end of one 2-3/4" x 5" C rectangle. Sew on the drawn line. Trim 1/4" away from stitching. Press seam toward resulting F triangle. Repeat for other end of rectangle. Repeat to create sixteen flying-geese units. Square to 2-3/4" x 5".
3. Assemble one block using four half-square triangle units, four flying-geese units and one 5" D square. Sew units into rows; press. Sew rows together; press. Repeat to make four Star Blocks. Square to 9-1/2".
