The block I am discussing today incorporates a 9 1/2" block and a 6 1/2" block within a 12 1/2" block.
So now I have got you thinking, if you do the simple math 9.5 + 6.5= 16 how can this work?? Please look at the picture below:
This is a funky stars block, I am using creative expression to make it this way (with very wonky points). Yes a 9.5" block and a 6.5" block can fit into a 12.5"- if they interlock like this design. Please look at the diagram below for layout.
For instructions on how to construct see photos below and refer to layout above:
Step 2- Do the same for the blue star & lay out all 2 1/2" sections, lay out the red star
Step 3- Lay your entire block out and sew individual segments together as shown above
Step 4- Sew all top rows (red star and grey) together from left to right, sew all bottom rows (blue star and red star bottom) together from left to right
I hope you are inspired to try this block, just Imagine it with other block designs with the same measurements. Please send me your photos to our contact page if you try this block and I will be happy to post it!
