Learn how to make another traditional 9 patch block – The Ohio Star, with a modern look
Another traditional 9 patch block. This one is made up with a central square in a square, four plain fabric corners and then 4 units that are made with quarter-square triangles.
The central unit is created with the stitch/n/flip method. Then Sallieann goes on to show you how to create the quarter-square triangle units. Remember when you lay them out ready for sewing that you need two hourglass and two bowties!
You can use this traditional block on its own in a quilt – simple make lots and add sashing and borders.
and if you like the idea of quarter-square triangles, then Valerie has a workshop which you can enjoy by clicking here.

This block, along with all the others in sampler series, can be repeated to create a quilt in their own right. Just make lots either in the same colourway, or various.
The full pattern is available on Sallieann’s website.
This completes the block construction- we will be moving on to sashing and borders next.
