Paper Piecing Pattern #207 Two Stars Squared Finished block size: 6 inch and 12 inch This is for a PDF pattern.
****** I originally came up with this design for my [4x5] Modern Quilting Bee block. After making 6 of these, I was absolutely smitten with it and want to share it with everyone who is also interested in using this block.
It is fairly quick to put together, with a simple pattern. Yet the results are bold and interesting. The bold lines and slight angles capture your eye and keep you focused on the design. The thick lines are also great for showing off prints that you love, instead of hiding them behind the design. A great addition to any sampler quilt, or put a lot of blocks together for a wonderful design!
In This Pattern: :: Pattern for 6 inch and 12 inch finished blocks :: Cutting templates for both sizes (great to help minimize waste, or for perfect fussy cutting! :: 3 different coloring pages
Cutting Templates are a great way to reduce fabric waste when paper piecing. They also speed up the process, and are a super easy way to fussy cut your fabrics!
