Star Quilt {Variable Star}




Variable Star



Cutting:
Background,
4- 3 1/2"x3 1/2" squares
1- 7 1/4"x7 1/4" square cut in 1/4ths diagonally
2- 3 7/8"x3 7/8" squares cut in half diagonally



Dark print,
4- 3 7/8"x3 7/8" squares cut in half diagonally
1- 4 3/4"x 4 3/4" square



Begin by sewing 4 background triangles to the 4 3/4" center square as shown in the image above.



Sew two dark print triangles onto the large background triangles. Make 4 of these flying geese blocks.



Sew two of the 3 1/2" squares to the ends of two of the flying geese blocks.



Now sew the remaining two flying geese blocks to the sides of the center block. As shown in the image above.



Sew the three strips together and you will have an unfinished 12 1/2" Variable Star block.
