...Now we sew! Working clockwise around the center (Color 2  2-1/2") square, with a consistently accurate 1/4" seam, first add a Color 1  1-1/2" x 2-1/2" strip. Press out the seam and add the next longest Color 1 strip(3-1/2") to the bottom of that. Press out the seam and add the shortest Color 2 strip (3-1/2") to the left side. Press out that seam and add the next longest Color 2 strip to the top. Press that out and add the next longest Color 1 strip to the right side....and continue in this manner, adding longer and longer strips clockwise 'til all strips have been added...

Here are sixteen blocks set in four groups of four, so that each group forms a star!

Happy Quilting!
