Welcome back from our mini break! Today we have a classic block that will really pop in your quilt.

This post is part of our summer quilt-along series. Find the rest of the posts by clicking {here}.

Template (download below in PRINTER FRIENDLY VERSION)

Fabric pieces in 4 colors large enough to cover template sections

NOTE: Test template size before you begin. The inside perimeter line should measure 6” on all sides. The outside perimeter should be 6.5” all around. Print 4 copies per block you plan to make.

Step 1. Print Sailor Star templates. You will need 4 copies to make a complete block. Use standard printer paper.

Step 2. Cut more than enough fabric to cover each of the sections. You don't want to short yourself so make sure you have plenty of overlap!

Step 3. Paper piece the block in numbered order as shown in the template. Remember to shorten your stitch length to make it easier to tear off the paper when you have finished. If you are new to paper piecing, take a look at this tutorial for the basics.

Step 4. Repeat to make 4 paper pieced sections.

Step 5. Remove the paper and square up each section to 6.5" square.

Step 6. Join the units together to complete the block.

This block finishes at 12" square.
