No Name Star


I saw this block in a quilt at a quilt show, but can't find a name for it. I've decided to call it the No Name Star. Your finished block should be 12 1/2 inches square. You will need to check each sub-unit as you make it to be sure they each measure 4 1/2 inches.



For the No Name Star you will need –

from a dark color cut two 4 7/8 inch squares, then cut each one in half diagonally to make a total of four dark triangles, and cut one 4 1/2 inch square






from a light color cut one 5 1/4 inch square, then cut it in half diagonally in both directions to make a total of four light triangles, and cut four 2 1/2 inch squares




from your background cut one 5 1/4 inch square, then cut it in half diagonally in both directions to make 4 triangles, and cut four 4 1/2 inch square.






First we'll make the middle sections. All four are alike, so you will follow these steps four times. Take a 2 1/2 inch light color square, and draw a line diagonally from corner to corner. Place this square on the dark triangle, and sew on that line. Cut the excess off 1/4 inch from the sewing line. This unit should measure 4 1/2 inches.

Take a background triangle and a light color triangle, and sew them together.
Sew this unit to the dark triangle unit.
This unit should also measure 4 1/2 inches.


You are now ready to assemble your block, following the diagramat the top of the page. Your finished block should be 12 1/2 inches.
