The Evening Star Quilting Block
This is a large, and therefore, frugal quilt block. Each of the large grids finishes at 4 inches, so the block is 16 1/2 inches raw.
This blocks is a 4-patch, further divided into 16 patches and 64 patches.
The larger star points are made to fit the width of the smaller Sawtooth Star Quilt Block. Since the patches on that block finish at 2 inches, that block finishes at 8 1/2 inches raw. That means the rectangle for the flying geese block is cut at 8 1/2 x 4 1/2 inches. (The squares for the geese quilt block. are cut at 4 1/2 x 4 1/2 inches raw)
Remember that the large patches finish at 4 inches; as opposed to the smaller Sawtooth block, where the small patches finish at 2 inches.
The squares in the corner are cut at 4 1/2 inches raw.
Again- there are a lot of star points on this block. Sew accurately so that you will have the 1/4 inch seam allowance from the tip of the stars to the edge of the fabric. You don't want to ruin this block by cutting off the star points when you sew it to another piece of fabric.
