How to Make a Beginner’s Star Quilt

Step 1:

Take 8 dark colored squares and one light colored square. Arrange them in a 9 patch with the light square on the middle.

Step 2:

Take a couple of light colored squares (same as the middle square), stack them, and cut in half horizontally and vertically to make 4 small squares. Press them in half diagonally to make a crease.

Step 3:

Get the middle squares on the 9 patch. Take one and place the small square on one corner, right sides together. Sew right on the line and trim excess. Do the same on the other side. Repeat for the other middle squares.

You can chain piece them to make the process faster.

Step 4:

Arrange the squares just like in the photo below. Sew them in rows first. Press the seams on the first and third row in the same direction and the middle in the opposite direction. Once done, sew the rows together to make the block.

You need 5 of this block.

For the other block, invert the colors. Only use one color or matching colors for the middle square and star points. You need 4 pieces of this second block.
