Quilting with Sandi


IX Step Two

SEWING: Floating Star Block
Mark a diagonal line on the back of each of the remaining 48 (80) 3” blocks. (OR carefully press crease on the diagonal instead of marking line if desired)
Align a 3” print square with one corner of the contrast 5 ½” square and sew on the line. Add a second 3” print square on the opposite corner of the contrast square.
Press the 2 attached triangles; trim the excess print fabric, leaving ¼” seam allowance. The block should be 5 ½” square including seam allowances.
Make 24 (40) of the Floating Star Blocks
