Brown fabric: cut (3) 13-1/4" wide strips from selvage to selvage; cut (9) 13-1/2" x 13-1/2" squares from the strips
Black fabric: cut (3) 13-1/4" wide strips from selvage to selvage; cut (9) 13-1/2" x 13-1/2" squares from the strips
- Pair a brown square with a black square. Use the easy sandwich method to make two half square triangle units from the pair. When complete, each unit should measure 12-7/8" x 12-7/8".
- Pair all remaining brown and black squares to make a total of 18 identical units.
- Pair two half square triangle units to make two quarter square triangle units, just as you did for red/neutral star tips. Be sure that contrasting fabrics face each other when units are aligned for sewing. Each completed unit should measure 12-1/2" x 12-1/2".
- Pair the remaining brown/black half square triangle units to make 18 quarter square units. One unit will not be used (it can be cut down for use in another project; you could also use your leftover fabrics to add borders to it and make a throw pillow cover to coordinate with your quilt.)
