Learn the Why Behind the How for Consistently Good Results!
Do you sometimes lose the points on your star blocks? If so, with care and a few good tips, you can create perfect star blocks every time.
Dawn from First Light Designs has put together an excellent tutorial that walks you through the process. She demonstrates with a Sawtooth Star block made from Flying Geese units.
Her well-thought-out piecing method will work with Flying Geese units combined in other configurations as well. And, it’s easy to adapt her method to other types of stars too.
This excellent tutorial shows the why behind the how. That makes it easy to generalize her tips to improve all of your piecing.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
