Ohio Star

Quilt Notes:

  • Quilt size – 52 x 66
  • Ohio Star blocks are 12 inches finished (12.5 with seam allowances)
  • Sashing and cornerstones are cut 2.5 inches
  • Border is cut 6.5 inches
  • Border cornerstones are made from 3 inch finished half square triangles

I fussy cut the centers of my Ohio Star blocks from my border fabric

I used my Accuquilt GO to cut my quarter square triangle blocks but rotary cut the squares for the Ohio Star blocks

Make 12 Ohio Star blocks – I made 6 of each and alternated them

  • Squares are cut 4.5 inches – you need a center square and 4 squares from your block background for each block.
  • I used my 4 inch finished quarter square triangle die to make the hourglass units for the star points but you can use any method you prefer for making them – you need 4 for each block. (Hourglass units will be 4.5 inches with seam allowances).

Blocks are set 3 across and 4 down and sashed with cornerstones.

Measure through center of quilt for side and top and bottom borders and cut to size.

Border cornerstones are made from 3 inch finished half square triangles – I used a GO die to make these but use any method you prefer. Make 4 blocks that measure 6.5 inches and attach to your top and bottom borders.

Sew side borders on first and then top and bottom borders.

Here’s a second quilt I made using the same basic instructions  it’s a great pattern to use when you have a fun focus print.
