Happy Block Heads Wednesday!
Here is another great Quilt Block FOR OUR QUILT ALONG PROJECT: Hampshire Star
My 4″ Hampshire Star quilt block was made with Urban Farmhouse Gatherings.
Again…I LOVE how my block turned out…I think this is the smallest block I have ever made with this many tiny pieces…it sure turned out cool…
You will have to go to Janet’s Blog to get the pattern for all the directions. But the week’s directions do not have the 4″ size…so scroll down for the cutting measurements if you are doing the 4″ blocks.
Thanks Janet for such a fun beautiful block!
I pieced the block a little differently than the pattern….
Hampshire Star 4 ” finished Cutting Measurements
9- SQUARE IN A SQUARE UNITS-In the center like a nine patch
Center squares 1 1/4″ Triangles- 1 1/2″ squares cut in half once on the diagonal. Trim them to 1 1/2″ square at this point. ( the 1 1/2″ is a little big. I like to trim SQinaSQ)
4- FLYING GEESE UNITS– 1- 2 1/4″ square, cut in half twice -LG triangle 4-1 3/8″ squares, cut in half once. Geese should measure 1″x 1 1/2″ at this point.
4 HALF SQUARE TRIANGLES I used 1/2″ half square triangle paper….cut dark/light fabric to 1 3/4″ x 3 1/4″. Stitch according to directions. If not using TP…cut 2 squares/ light & dark- 1 3/8″ for exact measurements. Cut bigger if you want to trim them down. Trim to 1″at this point.
8 RECTANGLES 1″ x 1 1/2″
You will need to determine what is light/dark/medium for your fabrics. I switched the dark and the light from the pattern…
