About the Ohio Star Quilt Block

This version of Ohio Star, with pink or orange stars sewn onto a white-on-white fabric background, called WOW for short, was originally used for a swap in our Quilting Forum. Sew your Ohio Star quilt blocks with the same colors that swappers chose, or design another theme to suit your needs.

Ohio Star is a nine-patch quilt block made with five plain squares and four quarter-square triangle units. It's a classic block that's easy to make, but do take care to sew a quarter inch seam when assembling the patchwork units.

Select pink or orange tone-on-tone fabrics. Multicolor prints are fine as long as they "read" as pink or orange -- which means that at a distance they must appear to be that color.

Finished block size: 12-inches square
