My QQQ Star Block


Here is how I made the star for 


for my Quilt Quasy Queen banner and mug rug.

I designed this nine patch star block to match the one my daughter put on my mug.

For each block:


cut

5 squares 2 and 1/2" purple
8 squares 1 and 1/2" purple
8 rectangles 1 and 1/2" by 2 and 3/4" yellow



Sew corner squares on small rectangles 
to make mirrored pairs.


Press the corners in alternate directions to easily nest seams, 
cut corner seams to 1/4 inch 
and sew.


Trim star points to 2 and 1/2 inches square.


Here are the trimmed and pressed units.
Sew together as for a Nine Patch Block.


The star center measures 6.5" unfinished.


Add 1 and 1/2 inch strips to alternate sides.


The bordered block measures 8" unfinished.

Enjoy!
