Designer Sampler: Block #4

We're celebrating National Quilting Month with a Sampler Quilt created using blocks by many of our fabric designers. Throughout the month, we'll share a block made by each of the designers listed below and featuring their newest fabric line, along with directions to sew that block. Come sew with us!

Block #4
Today we’re featuring Christa Watson’s Sunshine Star Block in her Abstract Garden collection.

Make the Block
1. Sew (2) 2” Light Pink Tracks squares and (2) 2” Orange Trellis squares together to create a 4-patch unit, measuring 3-1/2” square unfinished. Make a total of (4) 4-patch units.

2. Layer (1) 4” Light Pink Tracks square right sides together with one 4” red square. Draw a line down the diagonal center on the back side and sew 1/4” away on either side of the line. Cut on the line to reveal (2) half-square triangle units. Trim each half-square triangle unit to measure 3-1/2” square. Make a total of (8) HST units.

3. Join (2) HST units to make a star point unit. Make a total of (4) star point units.

4. Using the 6-1/2" Mustard Picket Fences in the center, lay out the units into 3 rows of 3 units each and sew each row. Join the rows to complete the block.
