Quilt Blocks of the States - Iowa Star
Iowa Star - 8" Quilt Block
Our State Block series continues with this paper-pieced version of the Iowa Star. You'll need four copies of the paper foundation pattern to make the block.
Step 1: Print out four copies of the paper-piecing pattern. Click here for the pattern.
Step 2: Following the numbers and fabric key printed on the pattern, paper-piece four identical units. Don't forget to shorten your stitch length on your sewing machine to make the removal of the paper easier!
Step 3: Arrange the four paper-pieced units as shown below and sew them into rows, using a 1/4" seam allowance.
Step 4: Sew the rows together to finish the block. Carefully remove the paper from the back of the block.
