Then, follow step 3, but you will get units measuring 1 1/2" x 2 1/2".

Following step 4, you will get units measuring 1" x 2 1/2".

Following step 5, the units will measure 1 1/2" x 2 1/2".

Step 7, you build the star. The unit will measure 2 1/2" square:

After step 8, the unit measures 2 1/2" x 4 1/2".
Step 9, units will measure 1 1/2" x 4 1/2".

Step 10, the block is 4 1/2" square:

ARMY STAR block measurements

For this block, I did not use foundation-piecing.... But I did a drawing in EQ7, to double check my measurements.

Cutting instructions:
(#16) 4 squares 1 1/2" X1 1/2"
(#24) 4 squares 1" x 1"
2 squares 2" X 2" (this is for the HST - they will be sewn oversized, and cut to correct size)
(#13) 1 square 3 3/4" x 3 3/4" (just as the "big" quilt: will be cut down to correct size after it is sewn)
8 rectangles 1" x 1 1/2"
(#1) 4 squares 2 1/4" x 2 1/4" (as is)
2 squares 2" x 2" (for the HST)
(#15) 1 square 1 1/2" x 1 1/2"; 1" square for the appliqué star
Background (#22) 1 strip 1" x 5 1/2"
1 rectangle 4" x 5 1/2"
2 strips 1" x 4 1/2"
Black (#10) 1 rectangle 4 1/4" x 4 1/2" for letter "A"

Follow step 1, but cut HST at 1 1/2" :

Then, follow step 2 to get the flying geese units. They need to be trim to 1" X 1 1/2": you need to align the 3/4" dot on the point (3/4 on each side is 1 1/2" total):

Next step on the next post (can't upload more attachments on this one)

Here in Laval (montreal) it is -12 celcius, but with the wind, feels like -30!

It must be 'brass monkey' weather over in the States at the moment, we even had a weather update for USA on our news this evening, particularly referencing Chicago. Hope everyone is safe & warm and not suffering power cuts.

I got the light confetti from http://www.azquilts.com

I got the black confetti from http://www.thespiderswebfabricshop.com/

Other backgrounds came from another store, but I can't remember which one. Check http://www.quiltshops.com/ which lists a bunch of shops, thanks to NanaPie for that link.

I finally got that Army Star block done ! I had missed the size on the blue rec.s on the first try ! :roll:
Got it done at 4.5 in. sq. and it's darn cute at that size. Did it just as Andree detailed earlier on this thread.
Thought I had some of the light backround....but not enough for the project ! Didn't some one find it and
give the site ? Haven't found it yet.

Oh--I did the "G" block and ended up with the little square in the middle being 1/4" and the sashing being 1/4". Let me tell you--mistakes show up really quick when you do this small.

OK--I went about this by a lot of trial and error and error and error. I finally did the math to find one-half size of the block. Drew it on graph paper and then worked toward the inside. Still--my flying geese turn out to be short a 1/4". Don't know how it happened but I am hoping if I continue doing it this way--it should all fit together in the end. I will know more tomorrow.

Andree, your FG block is beautiful! Does this mean you are done 2013 :lol: :lol: :lol:

Thank you :oops:
I'm not quite finished BOM2013: all appliqués stitch for months 7and 8, I'm at the decorative stitches stage. Border 9 is on its way, all appliqués cut (except the center piece which I re-design - i'm not doing the 2-0-1-3). Will fuse that in place tonight...

I really wanted to help with the math (excuses excuses), maybe tonight I'll work on the "A" block as well...
