Pattern notes: Star blocks and Four patches are easy to piece with the help of the Precision Trimmer 3 ruler. Step-by-step instructions include fabric requirements, cutting and sewing directions and quilt illustrations to guide you through the construction process.

The instructions are for one size of quilt. You can change the size of the projects to fit your needs by adding or subtracting rows of blocks and setting pieces, or by changing border treatments.

Rotary cutting and machine piecing techniques used in this pattern call for the use of a special rotary cutting ruler, the Precision Trimmer 3 designed by Marsha McCloskey. The ruler is produced and distributed by Feathered Star Productions, Inc.

Templates are provided for checking purposes and for quilters who prefer more traditional cutting and piecing methods.
