Oh, My Stars Block #16 Ohio Star

Hello Everyone

And welcome back to Oh, My Stars mystery quilt.  The next block in our series is called the Ohio Star.  This is a well-loved and easy block to do.  The pattern can be found at QuiltersCache.com but measures 12 inches.  Remember all blocks should measure 6.5 inches unfinished and you will need two of them.  I am somewhat behind on my blocks due to work and I will be posting my pattern and finished block later this week.  

For this block you will need 2 colors and yes, I am still using stash from my 10 inch squares.  

The measurements for this block are: 

Color #1:  Four 2 inch squares and  one  4 1/4 inch for the center.  You will also need 2 3/8 inch squares cut in half diagonally to give four triangles.

Color #2:  Four 2 3/8 inch squares cut in half diagonally for four triangles.  One 2 3/8 square.

If you remember to make a Diamond in the Square  and  the Dutchman’s Puzzle, it goes together very easily.

Thank you for playing along!  See you on Sunday, June 23 with the next installment.  

 

About cozyquilts

Hello and welcome to my website. My name is Donna. My hubby is retired and I am still working from home. I have twin daughters and am blessed with 4 grandchildren. We are owned by 4 cats that love to supervise and are very nosy. I have been quilting since 1996. In addition to making quilts for my family and friends, I also make charity quilts for Marjoree Mason Center and Valley Children's Hospital. Marjoree Mason Center is a local organization here that helps and supports battered and abused women and children get out of abusive relationships. Every Christmas I make several baby quilts for the women, along with a small stuffed animal. Valley Children's Hospital is a new venture for me that just started this year. Every month or so I drop off a couple of quilts along with a small toy, for the children. I use a lot of bright, fun fabrics to help cheer them up. I do special order quilts but please be advised in advance as I work full-time in addition to quilting, I only do a few during the year. Also, it may take up to 6 months to a year to completely finish a quilt as my sewing time is limited. I only do applique or patchwork and will incorporate machine embroidery into my patterns, when requested. Thank you for visiting and I hope to see you and friends again soon.
