2018 Block of the Month - Row 2

Hello friends... 
This next row is made up of 8 friendship stars ( remember there are two rows to make, and for those making it even larger, you may have to make more to increase the width of your quilt)

The block is a simple one, the trickery involved is in getting the points right ie not cutting any off.
Perhaps those of you who have been quilting a while might like to challenge themselves to get ALL their points right. 
Here is the cutting instructions for the blocks


This cutting follows the basic rule that if you want to make half square triangles, you always cut the squares 3/8 " larger than the size they will end up. 
What I mean by that is the square you see above is 2 1/2" inches. The half square measurement is 3/8" larger ( 2 7/8" )
When the half square triangles are made up they will be the same size as the squares - 2 1/2"

To sew these guys together is quite straight forward. In fact we covered this in last years BOM, so here's the link. There are plenty of good pictures showing the quick and easy way to sew half square triangles. Enjoy
