Holiday Sensation Quilt Mystery Clue #2 - Beacon Star

 Holiday Sensation Quilt Mystery Clue #2 is the Beacon Star! Beacon Star in both my fabric selections The Beacon Star is made up of (4) Diamond Wedges, (4) Large Wedges and (4) Corner Triangles.  We will be making (4) Beacon Star Blocks.  Starflower Christmas Fabric Selection Kaffe Fabric Selection Cutting Tip this week When cutting those large Wedges, take the time to line up the small mark at the tip as well as the mark proper measurement on the bottom.  Left Handed quilters may find it helpful to place the strip on a slant (above).  Right Handed quilters may find it helpful to place on the reverse angle (below). Stay organized Cutting for Starflower Christmas Cutting for Kaffe selections Stitching tips When sewing the Diamond, always stitch with the Diamond on top, make sure to have a good quarter inch seam allowance. Take time when trimming that Dog Ear.  Once you have the other small wedge sewn on, it is time to trim Right Handed - Make sure to take your time to line these up well
