I was so excited that all my star block corner points were matching up so well [ Spotted: Flying Geese! ] that I neglected to notice the outside edges were not! The finished blocks should be 8 1/2″ square, but believe me they were not.😜
I was able to square them up on my cutting mat to about 8 1/4″. I didn’t want to go smaller because then some of the points would get cut off when piecing the whole quilt together with 1/4″ seams. Trust me some will have a very scant 1/4″ seam!!! Oh I still long for the day of sewing a (near) perfect block…So at least I have a goal to work towards!
I have made a total of 12 star blocks. I decided to make the rest of the quilt just white fabric. I am figuring out layout and dimensions now. Hope all is well with you!
