How to Make a Strip Pieced Lone Star Block

Here’s a unique idea for making a lone star quilt block.  It comes from Coriander Quilts.  It is also a great way to use up some scraps.

The tutorial has detailed step-by-step instructions plus plenty of photos to help you out.  I love that the background sections are pieced so that there are no Y seams.  I have to tell you now that I really don’t like Y seams.

This block can easily be done quickly and the results are stunning.  Look closely at this design and you can see the white strip running around the center.  That adds a fun touch!
