Star and Crown Quilt the Star Block

I uploaded a video to YouTube showing how to make the Star Block in my Star and Crown quilt.

Here is the link to the video

Star Block

Starting with 5″ squares; one blue and one background and turning them into half-square-triangles.

And then the magic begins!  Sub cutting the half-square-triangles into 2 1/4″ pieces to play and design with.  I refer to these pieces as “Small Wonders”.

Small Wonders

Arrange them into star points.

And sew together to form 1/4 of the star block.

Star Points

Select four star points and sew together into the block.

Besides the one main fabric color version I used for my block, it’s also fun to make it scrappier!

I hope this has inspired some of you to dig into your stash, cut some 5″ squares, and make this Star and Crown quilt!

Please feel free to share the video link with any of your friends and quilting groups that you belong to.
