Of course I used a purple plaid backing. The fabrics in the top are shirtings - but this is a flannel-ish type fabric. It washed up super soft.
So - are you stitching along with the Quilt of Valor? So far the

And now we will start on the stitching. In my head - each step should take about 1 hour, or less - as most of you truly sew quicker than I.
We will be making 24 Star blocks - this is the first step in getting them ready.
They will measure 9 ½ inches unfinished.
I do everything in bulk so that when I am ready to assemble to block all the pieces are ready.
Grab your 48 – 4 inch White Squares.
Grab your 48 – 4 inch Blue Squares.
You will pair a white square with a navy square, right sides together.
Stitch ¼ inch away from the drawn diagonal on EACH SIDE of your pencil line.
Then take your rotary cutter and slice right down that line . It is much easier if you place your ruler along the pencil line and the cut.
Take the pieces to the ironing board and press to the dark side.
You should have 96 ½ square blocks. Mine usually turn out at exactly 3 ½ inches using this method. If you stitch differently – you will want to trim them down to 3 ½ inches.
See you Tomorrow for another step ;-) And don't worry if you get behind - I won't give you a step on Sunday.... I'll call it our catch up day ;-)
