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".
I've dabbled in almost everything crafty. I spend most of my time with my girls, sewing garments and quilting. Pattern making, fabric designing, and painting are tops too. My favorite sources for inspiration are usually excessively colorful while being dark and subversive. However, I spend most of my time working on an exceedingly long laundry list of things that just pop up.
