The STAR Building Block is a good pattern for confident beginners. Learning about half square triangles and “squaring up” are featured in the tutorial for this block. You will also get tips for matching points.
This pattern is part of LearnHowToQuilt’s Building Blocks. With Building Blocks, quilters learn one or more quilting skills while making a block. This is a great way for beginners to pick up new techniques/methods without having to commit to a whole quilt. Each kit contains the pattern and fabric used to make a block along with a link to a step-by-step video. Extra PDF copies of the patterns are also available online.
These completed blocks can be added together to form a quilt, used in other ventures found in Small Projects, or kept as references.
