Basic Skills Necessary:

  • 1/4" seam allowance

Pattern Description:

A simple block made with Half Square Triangles and Squares. I redrafted this Star Crossed block to be larger for the purposes of a Charity Quilt. This tutorial makes a 12.5" finished block.

Using this block all over a quilt makes a fun, interesting, and easy quilt. If going for a more polished look, use the same background across all blocks.

*Original block tutorial for Star Crossed, 10" finished block can be found at Don't Call Me Betsy. I checked with Elizabeth to re-size the block on June 21, 2013.

To make a 12" finished block, cut the squares and HSTs to 2.9" instead of 3".

  • 12.5" finished block

Materials:

  • rotary cutter and mat
  • sewing machine
