Fundamentals Sew Along - Week 30

Hi Everyone:

      I have just found my new very favorite block!  It is this weeks block.  If you look closely you will see that the Stonehenge version has a stronger value change between the center square and the surrounding triangles than the 30's version.  Both are so pretty!

      This weeks block is called Variable Star.  Assembly line piece squares and triangles.  Stitch 2 quarter square triangles together to make pieced triangles, then sew 2 pieced triangles together to make quarter square triangle squares.

Assembly Line Piecing

Then piece together 4 four patch blocks and 4 quarter square triangle blocks and assemble according to diagram below.
