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:


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.
