This is the FINAL square block! Are you excited???? I am!
G6- Not nearly as hard as you might think. !st of all PP the little center star or piece in the method of your choice. Then sew the background fabric around it log cabin style. Here is the method that worked for me next--I printed ANOTHER block and cut out the center star section to make a template to trim it. Then if you are using the foundation patterns, sew the 2 separate star points on next, then the bottom right corner, then the left side. You should be able to avoid Y seams in this way.
RS 3- I printed copies of the block to make PP patterns for this one too. If you look closely at the pic, you can see where I extended the lines on the top sections to eliminate the need to applique those diamonds. I also pp'd the bottom section. For the big circle..I drew a circle on freezer paper, cut it in half and pp'd the alternating burgundy and beige (on mine). Then I sewed my 2 arcs together to make a circle. I appliqued the circle to the background. I then made black melons and appliqued them on the top. its one of my favorite tris..I think it turned out pretty.
TR13- I redid the groups in the software so that I could pp the entire block with the exception of the melons. I used freezer paper on these and just tucked them into the seams.
