Bakers Dozen: Quilt Along With HeartSong Quilts Month 5

Baker’s Dozen Block of the Month

Month 5–(8) 12” Star Block with Cross and (4) 12” Eight Pointed Star Block

12” Star Block with Cross is found on page 16.  This block is pretty straightforward so I don’t have any special knowledge or instructions.

For each block, you need four foundation pieced corner squares for a total of 32!  As I mentioned before, I did not make sure each corner piece was identical, I felt it would be too much to ask of myself to keep track of which strip went where.  If you want to make sure each corner is the same, you will need to make them four at a time.

For me, I decided to make all 32 at the same time.  Actually, we will need another 16 for the 12” Eight Pointed Star blocks, so we’ll need 48 in total.

I don’t know if it is easier, but I decided to draw my diagonal lines across the whole sheet, and then cut the squares 4” x 4”

Eight Pointed Star Block 12” is found on page 27.  This is the same block we made in Month 1.  The only difference is this block is 12”.  If you need a refresher on ‘Y’ seams, and set in seams, please refer to this information found in Month 1.  Also, remember that we posted  videos with some helpful tips on this on the HeartSong Facebook page and on the Bakers Dozen Quiltalong with HeartSong Facebook page.

As I mentioned before, you will need four foundation pieced 4” x 4” corner blocks for each block, for a total of 16.

Unfortunately, I neglected to take a picture of any of these blocks before I put them all together.  No reason, I just forgot.

Good luck, have fun, and I’ll be back in a month!

One thought on “Bakers Dozen: Quilt Along With HeartSong Quilts Month 5

  1. Just wondering if others in the group have run out of material before cutting all the pieces for this month. I still need to cut 23 pieces of T12 and only have 3 of the fat eights(?) those pieces that are about 9″ x 10.5″. There is no way that can happen. The other problem is that all the pieces have about the same value so patterns of the blocks will definitely not show up. All that is left of all the fabrics received is those 3 and a handful of scraps all less than 2″ square.
