Welcome to another edition of Tutorial Tuesday!! I'm here to share my latest hair brained idea. You KNOW that I love miniatures, right? Well, I've really done it this time...
Quilters, I've shrunk the
Magic Stars Quilt!!!
Here is the tutorial for Joyful's MINI MAGIC STARS:
... And turn the chunk so that you can cut it into a pair of 3.25" squares and a pair of short strips measuring 1.75" x 3.25 inches:
After that, you will swap the pieces and parts to make units like the one below. First, by stitching opposite squares and short strips...
There will be some trimming required when these units are sewn. As shown in the photo below, you will trim to 4.5" square:
Note: The previous cut can be made before sewing. I choose to wait until after the pieces are sewn.
Stack the resulting (trimmed) pairs, right side up...
... And line up as shown below, and cut them from corner to corner. Please make sure you can see your "star point" triangles to make sure you are cutting on the appropriate diagonal:
Switch the pieces around and sew. Sorry! A cutting mishap had me switching out a piece. Pretend the background is the same:
After sewing, your pieces will look like this:
Press and trim to 4 inches square:
