Hey, y'all. BamaBee here.
Check out this block. I call it a "Star of Valor." I designed this 12 inch block using a pattern I modified from one that I saw on Fons and Porter's Love of Quilting. The star is a 12 inch lone star. The star is surrounded by squares and quarter-square triangles to finish the block. If you would like to know how to piece a block like this, check out the 1400 series of LOQ.
I chose red, white and blue fabric. The white fabric appears solid, but it actually has a tiny triangle pattern.
I hope to make this block this weekend. I will take photos and write down the directions as I go. I will post them along with a photo of the finished block.
