Last month I set a little challenge. I told you that this months block would be nearly the same.
Lots of you took up the challenge and went ahead and made the block.

This Months block is called Ohio Star

Here is the key and rotary cutting instructions for this block.. yes there are only 2 shapes to cut!

So reading off the "map" of our block 
A - 4 1/2 " Squares ,
 (background and main)
B - 5 1/4" Squares, cut twice on the diagonal to yield 4 triangles (background, main and accent)

Here is the layout. 

Here are my sewing pics for the unit and rows..

What a nice easy block Ohio star is!
Here are some quilts made from this simple but effective little block..(Found on Pinterest)

I received my package today and I am anxious to get going. I ordered the rosette starter pack. Your video is excellent. I also loved your beautiful Australian postage stamp. I will keep you posted. Do you have an email address in case I have a question.
