    Hi everyone,
    I am posting the Star block pattern that I have chose the month of July. It is a great pattern to make & I think everyone will enjoy making theirs. Good Luck to all. I can't wait to see how yours truns out!!

    It's called Evening Star by Jinny Beyer

    I love it. I am so far behind. Just haven't been able to find the time this summer. Maybe I'll get caught up this weekend.

    I have mine printed, and I hope to start it soon. I wish I could wait a bit and watch what others do but I am always anxious to get going! Looks like fun. I have not done much with templates.

    Thanks, SulaBug, for the pattern. I've never worked with templates and am not sure how to start this. Could someone give me a little advice on how to go about making the templates?

    I'm new to this board and noticed this was JULY 2011 BOM. Where can I get the other blocks for the year?

    This will be my first time using templates are there pointers or tips ya'll would like to share. I am going to go do a search to see what I can come up with.

    Thanks for a great star Sula

    I just used the templates exactly the way they printed out & I didn't have any trouble at all putting this block together. I think you will be please at how easy it does come together. Good Luck & be sure to share a picture when you are finished!!

    I printed my templates out on white card stock. I cut them out using an old rotary cutter (used only for paper), then traced them on the back of my fabric. If you know your machine sews a perfect 1/4" seam, you can cut them out on the outside line. If you need a stitching line, cut the templates on the dotted line and add the 1/4" margin when you cut them out on the fabric. Hope that helps!

    In step #2 -- how do you do the corner?

    A straight across would have been soooo much easier :)

    watch your center angle peices as you can see I flipped one set and did not see it until the pic was taken and was not ripping the whole thing apart. Look at the gold fabric you will see my uniqueness shine though. No maybe just a screw up! ha ha

    I am glad to know that I am not the only one to do the same thing!! :thumbup: I did take mine apart & fixed it. It wasn't actually to hard to do, so I suffered & did it!! I like your block a lot.

    Could some one tell me the best order to sew together the 3 pieces in the corner blocks? I understand I need to stop 1/4 inch from the end but do I add both sides to the small square and then join the corners? Everyway I have tried feels so difficult. Thnaks in advance!

    I sewed the square on last after the other pieces were put together. Seemed to work out OK for me. Hope that helps.
