It’s time for the Block #3 tutorial from Riley Blake’s Meet the Makers series. Once again, I’m using a mix of fabrics from my Gingham Girls and Sunnyside Avenue collections. Important note: if you use the no-waste method above, you will cut your fabrics differently than the cutting list above.

Here is the  tutorial for this fun star within a star, Block #3. The Fabric Requirements per block Riley White:

If you prefer to make your flying-geese using the no-waste four-at-a-time flying geese method I’ve got a tutorial here as well as a cutting chart.

For the four outside flying geese blocks you will need one large white 6 1/4″ x 6 1/4″ squares and four colored 3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ squares.

For the four smaller inside flying geese blocks you will need one large white (or I used a print) 3 3/4″ x 3 3/4″ square and four colored 2 1/4″ x 2 1/4″ square.

Here’s my variety of stars for this week’s block. This time I decided to mix up the colors a little more so that I can play with more of the different fabrics and combinations. Because scrappy makes me happy.

But here’s an example of a quilt made with a similar quilt block in only 2 colors and I love it too!
