Split Star Tutorial

Still working on that t-shirt quilt — but found a little time to cut and stitch this block. The pictures and instructions are below. You can find the adobe pdf version of the instructions here.  

Errata: On the original post, the D block was the wrong size. It has been corrected in both the adobe document as well as on this post. I apologize for the error.

  1. I love this block and quilt, Marjorie! I’m not finding a lot of time for piecing at the moment as we went to MQX and then did the New Jersey Shop Hop on the way home. I had to finish the Hop on two afternoons this week.
    Now I’ve got to catch up on quilting Quilts of Valor that are waiting for me. BUT I am really enjoying the QOV challenge.
    Thanks!
