FWS Block # 87 Star Gardener

1. Dark T # 19 Cut two strips 1-1/2" x 6-1/2" then cut every 1-1/2" to get eight 1-1/2" squares.

2. Light T # 1 Cut one 2-1/2" square.

note: step 3 and 4 are the same and because there are so many HST's from these two seps I am rounding up the fraction to an even 2"


3. Light T # 13 Cut two strips 2" x 12-1/2" then cut every 2" to get 12 squares**...mark a line diagonally.. set aside.

4. Dark T # 13 repeat step 3 to **.... take a light and dark square from steps 3 & 4 place them right sides facing...sew a scant 1/2" seam along both sides of the marked line then cut on the line. press the seam.. open the seam..press again with out stretching the seam.
