This month’s block is called The Star of the East and can be found at: http://quilterscache.com/S/StaroftheEastBlock.html. The only problem is that it is a 6 inch block and it has the half square triangles at the edges. I have left them as plain, but you can do either one. It is also a paper-pieced pattern. The block I am using is a 12.5 inch block unfinished and I am using EQ Block Base to make it. I am attaching both the template and rotary cutting directions for a 12.5 inch block and the templates are the right size for cutting.
If you have Block Base, the number for the block is #3745 and is called Star of the East. You can click on print and it will give you the measurements when you enter the size of the block. Have fun.
I hope you enjoy making it as I believe it is a beautiful block for the holidays. Enjoy!
