Oh, My Stars Block #22 Album Quilt

Hello and welcome back to Oh, My Stars!  This is block #22 and is called Album Quilt. This block is similar in construction to the Ohio Star.  I looked online at quilters.cache and the one I want to use is not listed.  You can find it either in EQ or Block Base, just make sure that it is a 6.5 inch block when you print the pattern and directions.

Fabric Selection:  You will only need 2 colors, a light and a dark.  If you want you can use a lighter color for the center strip. 

 

Cutting Directions: 

From the dark, you will need the following:

  1.  Eight 2 inch squares.

  2. Two 3.5 x 1.5 inch strips.

From the light, you will need the following:

  1. Four 2 inch squares.

  2. Four 3.5 x 2 inch strips.

  3. One 3.5 x 1.5 inch strip.

Sewing Directions:

Using either the flying goose method or just half-square triangle method, which I prefer, form your units, remembering to layer your strips in the center horizontally to form the center with the dark on the outside.

 

Pictures will be posted later. 

 

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.
