Elementary Star Quilt Pattern
This teaching pattern was designed as a class project. Exact measurements are not only given in the directions, but the way to find those measurements is also explained. You will not cut your strips in the beginning of the project as you normally do, but will cut them along the way as each step is explored. Topics covered include: straight of grain/bias, accurate cutting, how to get an accurate 1/4" seam, how to make a half square triangle, how to make a quarter square triangle, twirling the seams to reduce bulk, chain piecing, easing a block component to make sure the block is square, squaring up your top, setting a block (or quilt) on point, adding a mitered border, adding a flange, measuring a border so the quilt lays flat and finishing options.
