Piecing Instructions:
*These instructions are per block. Repeat them until you have completed the 8 blocks necessary for your project.
1) Grab 1 background 3 ½ X 5 ½ ” rectangle- background and 3 ½ X 5 ½ ” rectangle- color fabric

2) Lay All Pieces
–RIGHT SIDES UP–
1 backgrounds, and 1 pattered on top of each other.
Make sure the sides are all lined up nicely. This is the only way you can get the star to be spinning in one direction…..otherwise they will be super cranky spinners.3) Lay your ruler on top of the pile from corner to corner.
Cut.

4) Take one background and one colored piece and put them right sides together along the cut edge. Make sure that a tip is peeking out from the edge. Sew along this edge. Repeat with other piece.

5) Trim these pieces to 2 ½ X 4 ½ “. Remember these are cranky. The points might be cut off. It’s ok. 🙂 don’t get all cranky.

6) Take the pieces and lay out the block.

7) Sew the top, middle, and bottom pieces together.

8) Sew the block 3 pieces together. See isn’t that easy? Not too Cranky was it?
9) Repeat this process until you have 8 completed blocks.
10) Sew them in a row.

See the green one? It is SUPER CRANKY!! It is turning the wrong direction!!! Want to do that on your own? Cut the diagonal the OTHER way!!—i think that works???
