Lone Star Quilt
lots of different ways to tackle this bit of the quilt - this is my way.
you need will need some baking/ tracing paper, sticky tape,your ruler and a maker.
with a ruler draw the lines to mark out your triangle space
add in a 1/4 inch seam allowance on the outside.
The template needs to be 1/4 inch bigger than the space don't forget the bottom as well! it also needs 1/4 for what ever is next -eg another boarder or even just binding
mark the middle and cut
Voila! decide how long you want your template to be - I've made mine short in this picture(finishing at the end of the star - I will actually make it longer after thinking about it, I want more room for machine quilting)
next is your corner square - same process as above
I've changed my mind about the fabric I had chosen
- I'm off looking for a lighter fabric
- maybe a chambray? or robert Kaufman shot cotton??
I will need around 1.5 - 2 meters of fabric, depends on the star size and how fussy you are at cutting etc.
