Oh, My Stars Block #18

Hello and Welcome back to Oh, My Stars Mystery Quilt.  This is block #18 and it is called Texas Star!

I do not know about you, but here in the valley in California, we are having a heat wave along with humidity and I’m doing my very best not to turn on the iron, not really in the mood for a sauna at the moment.  I am off this next weekend and plan to catch up then so for now I’m only posting the directions for the block. 

The Texas Star is an easy block and looks similar to the Ohio Star.  I looked online at Quilterscache and it is not available there.  You will need to make 2 of these blocks and they should finish at 6.5 inches.  I will be using three colors, a dark, medium and background.

Cutting Directions:

  1.  From the light color, you will need to cut two 3 1.4 inch squares, cut into quarters to give 8 triangles.

  2. From the dark color you will need to cut one 2.5 inch square.

  3. From the dark color, you will need to cut two 3 1.4 inch squares cut into quarters to give 8 triangles.

  4. From the medium color, you will need to cut four 2.5 inch squares.

Sewing Directions:  See together four X blocks and sew together as a 9-patch.

I will be posting my block over the weekend.  If you have Block Base or EQ software, you can find the block under the name of Texas Star.  Have fun and thank you for playing along!

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.
