The first thing that I would recommend that you do, is go to the Practice Paper Piecing Page.  When you feel comfy with paper piecing, come on back and try a Christmas Quilt 2002 block! You will need to print out one copy of the template A page and four copies of the template B page per block you want to make on very lightweight paper.

After your units are paper pieced, join the red units as shown at far left. Then sew the red and green units together as shown at near left!

That's it for the block! If you'll be making the quilt--Read On! :o)

Make 15 star blocks for the quilt!

Make 15 alternate blocks next, shown here smaller than scale, to save space.  To make these, place a Color 2  6-1/2" square right sides together against the upper left corner of a Color 1  12-1/2" square. On the back of the Color 2 square, lightly draw the diagonal. Sew on this drawn line. Cut off the excess seam allowance, pressing remainder towards the corner triangle. Repeat this with another Color 2 square on the opposing corner, and then two more Color 2 squares on the adjacent corners...


Now cut two strips of fabric 6-1/2" x 72-1/2" ( Piece two pieces of 6-1/2" x 36-1/4" fabric for each unit) These will be the side borders...on to Page 2!
