Lesson Four: Ohio Stars and Pinwheels

Lesson 4: Moving right along! Here is Lesson 4 of the Perfect Points Sampler.
Ohio Stars: This week’s lesson focuses on maintaining straight diagonal, horizontal and vertical lines within and between the two Ohio Star blocks. Quarter-square triangles (QSTs) are made with the grid method.
Check out our tutorial on QSTs called Stars – QSTs Variable Stars.

Pinwheel: This simple block will give you practice with intersecting diagonal lines and four quadrants that come together in points. To review how to “swirl” the seams on the back to help the block lay flat, watch the CT tutorial Intro to Half Square Triangles.

Resources: Please revisit the list of CT tutorials and related products in the posting notes for the Lesson 3 on March 20th for information on HSTs and QSTs. Have fun! Thanks to all of you who have supported each other with complements and suggestions. Also, I feel excited and gratified when I hear someone’s piecing is improving!Looking forward to hearing from you and seeing your photos.
