Okay girls, here you go. I have had many requests to get this block ready for you and here it is. This month will be the only month of piecing. You will make 4 variable star blocks. I have shown where, in relation to the eagle, they will go. Don't sew them together yet as there will be sashing. The link will take you to the directions for cutting and a diagram to show how to put together. Happy Sewing. Make sure to post your pictures on the flickr page for everyone to see. The link is on the sidebar. http://www.scribd.com/doc/21663211/Vicksburg-Stars Remember all blocks finish at 12". If you haven't joined Pat Sloan's quiltmashup forum do it now. If you downloaded or read the pattern yesterday there was an error. The red center squares should be cut at 4 1/2". The instructions have now been corrected. Sorry, that's why I have an editor.
