Let me tell you a little about us. We are sisters, Heather and Megan, together we design quilt patterns and run our blog! In our patterns, found HERE, we like to use traditional piecing with modern fabrics and twists! We've also got a thing for applique :) We are constantly designing new patterns...we both admit that more nights than not it's how we fall asleep. Such is the life of fabric lovers, right??
Our blog is Quilt Story. About three times a week we feature YOU! That's right, we feature other blogger's finished quilts and the stories behind them. See HERE to learn more about being featured. We featured Bec's Sand Castle Quilt a while back :) Also every Tuesday we have a linky party called Fabric Tuesday, it is tons of fun where you can link your own fabric projects and see what other's are up to. Not to mention that Megan and I share our own projects on the site too!!!
We've got a block tutorial to share with you today, Friendship Star:
see image below
Solid background: two 4.25" x 4.25" squares for HST and four 3.5" x 3.5"
Contrasting pinwheel: two 4.25" x 4.25" squares for HST
Center: one 3.5" x 3.5"
HST (half-square triangle)
Draw a line from corner to corner on both solid background pieces.
Sew 1/4 inch on each side of the pencil line, then cut down the pencil line.
Square the HST's to 3.5"
Piece together in rows first, always using 1/4" seams
Then sew rows together!
Voila! One 9.5" x 9.5" finished block
