  • fusible web
  • scissors, straight pins, rotary cutter, mat, acrylic ruler

  1. Piece two of the 29 1/2” right square triangles together along the stripe to make one large triangle. Piece the other two pieces together matching the stripes as shown. Sew the two large triangles together with the stripes at right angles on the diagonal seam.
    NOTE: Handle the quilt gently as all of the outside edges are on the bias.
  1. Sew together two CX3745 2-1/2” x W.O.F. strips. Offset the stripes to create a checkerboard. Repeat for the remaining (8) pieces. Total (5) 4-1/2” checkerboard pieces. Trim ends leaving 1/4” seam allowance on each end. Sew two checkerboard strips together maintaining the patterns. From this piece cut one piece 40-1/2” long. Sew to the top edge. Repeat for the bottom edge. Carefully ease in any fullness to lay flat. Piece the remaining checkerboard strips together to make two 48-1/2” pieces. Sew one to each side.
  2. For the large square sew together the 17” x 9” pieces mitering each corner. Match all of the stripes at each miter to make a 17” square. Trace ‘star’ onto the paper side of the fusible web. Cut out leaving a small margin around the image. Press on to the back of a small piece of K1149. Cut out. Press the star over the center intersection. Machine satin stitch all raw edges to finish.
