The Ohio Star is another traditional pattern to which Sallieann gives a modern look with her use of the Oakshott fabrics.
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!
This traditional block is often used 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.
