Ohio Star Quilt Block Pattern is another classic block that is fairly well known, even among non-quilters. As the name implies, it is a star design formed by the points of quarter-square triangles that surround a central square. The block is believed to have been in use as a prominent design as early as the mid-1800s.

**I prefer to cut my patches extra large for QST, stitch, and then trim them to size. If you prefer to do the same, add a bit extra to the measurements for Patches #1 and #2 above (I added 1/2″ to each dimension for the sample block).
There is a chart further down in these instructions where you need it for trimming them to size. If you have a perfectly reliable 1/4″ seam allowance use the dimensions in the cutting charts for these patches.
REMEMBER I am making according to my size requirement for my quilt. You can and should decide if you need to make it larger, smaller, long, or wide.
As for the colors I started with the stars being in red and the center will be in black, because my husband is passionate about dark colors, especially black and red and I am making it in these colors because it is a gift for him.
