Queen Bee - My Double Star Block ^o^

I was the Queen Bee of January 2013 in my quilting group Desi Quilters. I was so excited and I already hearted  this block I saw on Flickr, but could not find any tutorial about it. 

So, I sat dawn and drawn my own based on the picture I saw on Flickr. 
I called it Double Star block. This quite simple to make. 

First, here’s what you need:
1 - Background color  is BLACK
2-  Star colors: 2 CONTRAST COLOR and use ONLY SOLID

So, here we go :

THE CUTTING:
BLACK fabric:
-          Cut  4 ½ “ x 4 ½ “ -  4 pcs
-          Cut 4 ½ “ x 2 ½ “  - 8 pcs
-          Cut 2 ½” x 2 ½” – 4 pcs

SOLID  contrasting color:
-          Color  #1 : 2 ½” x 2 ½” – 7 pcs
-          Color #2 : 2 ½” x 2 ½ “ – 7 pcs

Finished block: 12" x 12" 




THE METHOD:
1.       Making flying  geese:

Take 4 BLACK 4 ½” squares and take 4 pcs of each 2 ½” squares of solid and make into 4 flying geese .








2.       Make the  1 ½ flying geese (umm that’s what I called this piece, btw)
PLEASE REFER to the picture of the complete block for the placement of the color squares in this piece. 
Like making the flying geese, place 2 SAME  color of 2 ½” squares  SOLID  on one side of the 4 ½” BLACK squares  and CONTRASTING color of 2 ½” squares  SOLID  on the other side.



3.       Once you’re done, don’t forget to  first IRON flat all the seam to the dark side. Then arrange all the pieces and accordingly stitch each row and then assemble the whole thing.



Tadddaaa…your double star block is ready. Easy peasy,  isn’t it? ^_^






Happy  Sewing ^_^
