Piece & Cut BOM - March

An original design by Rhonda - This is a 12 1/2" quilt block. 

Click on the 4 Patch tab above and the HST tab above for directions
on how to make the shortcut blocks I used in this design.
Once you learn to make those blocks then look at the layout picture below 
where you can see how the individual blocks are placed 
and where the colors need to be. 

You will need a 2 1/2" template for this design. 
I send out a free 2 1/2" hard plastic template. 
To receive one email me your postal address to

This is my variation of a Jacob's Ladder

Star Point Square Tutorial

Star Points are one of my shortcut methods that make piecing easier and gives you intricate looks with easy steps.

You do have to have a template to make these. Then once you make the star point squares you sew them into a quilt block of your choice to make a quilt or other project.

For a 12 1/2" quilt block you need a 2 1/2" template.
