99 Modern Quilt Blocks - Megan's Star Tutorial

Lauralei's (Megan's) Star Tutorial

here are the cutting instructions:

4 3/4" x 4 3/4" fussy cut on the diagonal

Center triangles
cut 2 squares 4" - cut on the diagonal to make 4 triangles

Star points
cut 8 squares 2 1/2"

cut 4 rectangles 1 1/2" x 3 1/2 "
cut 8 rectangles 3 1/2" x 4 1/2 "

Corner triangles
cut 4 squares 2 1/2"

I chose to do a fussy cut on the diagonal for the center block

I also added the (optional) black strip to make the tiger stand out more.
sew triangles to the center block

right sides together, put a star square on corner of 3 1/2" x 4 1/2 " rectangle
You can draw a line on the diagonal or I just sewed across without the line by lining
up with a line on my machine plate

trim corner excess fabric

sew other corners till you have 4 sections 
** for the 4 corner triangles on the other 3 1/2" x 4 1/2 " rectangles
make sure you do 2 on one side and 2 on the opposite 
I lined them up so that faced the correct direction when you lay them out

sew the small strip to both side of the star rectangles

lay out all the pieces
