I've had some inquiries about the size of my blocks. They will finish at 11". The 9-patch center is constructed from 2-1/2" squares. But the outside round is cut from 3" strips. The sew-and-flip star points are 2-1/2" squares.
That allows the star points to "float" or have some breathing room so that I don't have to worry about the points precisely matching when I put the blocks together.
So for one block I need:
4 rectangles @ 3" x 6-1/2"
4 squares @ 3 "
5 squares @ 2-1/2
12 squares @ 2-1/2"
Yesterday was only Day 4, but with Grandson's wedding this weekend I thought it wise to stitch ahead. I devoted most of my time at Devo and Sew yesterday to stitching the sew-and-flip star points because I am never quite happy with the seam allowance on my travel machine, especially when I'm combining parts sewn on different machines (9Ps had been stitched at home) .
However, after prepping about five blocks yesterday, I decided to assemble one to show my progress to everyone.
