Block 2: Star of Virginia
I made the star using geese units, using a single unit for white as opposed to HSTs. It did turn out quite well, even though there was some waste.
Block 3: Star
This was a paper pieced block. It took me a while to get this correctly, but I am quite happy with how it turned out.
The only problem is the scaling was messed up when I was printing the templates, so this block ended up being 11.75" x 11.75" instead of 12.5" x 12.5". I guess I will need to add a small border onto it, because my other 2 blocks are the correct size.
