We love it when a somewhat complex-looking block comes together using simple methods, like our favorite half-square triangle. With so many projects out there, it’s easy to get intimidated so when we can find a way to make our work easier, we are all for it!
Using a few simple cuts, including the half-square triangle, you can make the dazzling Austin Star block!
When you make a quilt using this block, you really get to have some fun with shapes. Every time I look at an Austin Star Quilt, my eye is drawn to a new shape.
We hope you will check out the following video tutorial from Alanda Craft and see for yourself just how easy it is to make this wonderful pattern. When you are done, be sure to take some pictures of your finished quilt and let us know how it turned out; we absolutely can not wait to see your beautiful creations!
