Quilt Blocks of the States - Ohio Star

Guest Author - Kim Noblin

Ohio Star - 12" Quilt Block

The next block in our state block series is Ohio Star. We'll use the square in the corner technique for the flying geese units and the center diamond.

Fabric Key:

Cutting Instructions:

  • Cut eight 3-1/2" squares
  • Cut one 6-1/2" square

  • Cut eight 3-1/2" squares
  • Cut four 3-1/2" x 6-1/2" rectangles

Sewing Instructions:

Step 1: With a pencil (or your favorite marking method), draw a diagonal line from corner to corner on the wrong side of all dark green 3-1/2" squares and four light green 3-1/2" squares.

Step 2: Place a 3-1/2" dark green square on the right end of a light green 3-1/2" x 6-1/2" rectangle. Sew on the drawn line and trim the seam allowance 1/4" above the sewn line. Press the seam allowance toward the dark green fabric. Place a 3-1/2" dark green square on the left end of the same light green 3-1/2" x 6-1/2' rectangle. Sew on the drawn line and trim the seam allowance 1/4" above the sewn line. Press the seam allowance toward the dark green fabric. Repeat three more times for a total of four light green/dark green flying geese units.

Step 3: Place a 3-1/2" light green square in the upper right corner of the 6-1/2" dark green square. Sew on the drawn line and trim the seam allowance 1/4" above the sewn line. Press the seam allowance toward the light green fabric. Repeat in the lower left corner, then the upper left corner, and finally the lower right corner.

Step 3: Arrange the sections as shown below and sew into rows (Diagram 1). Sew the rows (Diagram 2) together to finish the block (Diagram 3) .

Diagram 3:


Your block should measure 12-1/2" on all sides. It will measure 12" finished size when it is sewn into a quilt.
