Today we are moving beyond the center and adding our borders!
If you have chosen to finish your quilt, that’s fine too.
The outer borders feature some super simple nine patch quilt blocks and four star quilt blocks.
They are set in a corner, not on point– but they do have triangles along the sides of the nine patch quilt blocks and on the top of the star quilt blocks.
These blocks will only take a couple of months, and then we will be setting the whole quilt top together! So exciting!
So, for today- let’s focus on the star quilt blocks.
There are eight of them– 1 per corner, for 4 star blocks total.
Supplies you may need:
- Rotary cutter or a new sharp blade
- Cutting Mat
- Quilt Ruler
- Sewing Machine – this brother is my favorite!
- Iron – here or here
- Seam Ripper – not my favorite thing to do!

Applique: choose either wool or cotton fabric applique. Applique templates don’t have seam allowance added.
