Our star and chains block pattern can be made by implementing the paper piecing pattern with the use of the templates that we present here. Scraps can be used or you can use materials that we have suggested. Our suggested material amounts are an over-exaggeration, so if you make a mistake you always have more fabric to work with. Our pattern makes a 6x6 inch quilting block with a 1/4 inch grace allowance. This way you can make any size quilt you desire within 6 inch increments of your desired result. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY You should already know how to use a paper piecing pattern with templates.
