This block is a little deja-vu. Apparently Salinda Rupp was a fan of Lone Star blocks.
Once again, I traced everything out onto freezer paper, numbered and labeled (Dark, Medium, Light) each piece. I numbered two copies. One that I cut out and used as the template and one that I left intact so I could figure out where the tiny pieces went when I lost track of things.
Here is everything for the star set out and ready to go.
First I assembled the 8 star points. You'll need to pay attention to your pressing. I made sure the seams were going different ways to minimize the bulk.
Here is the flip side. Attach the star points together. Remember to stop sewing on the outer side of your seams at the 1/4 inch seam allowance (and backstitch).
Here are the star points attached and the corners ready to go. Each one of these is a Y-seam. Attach each of them using the instructions in this link.
