This makes a 9" block, and is paper pieced!

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 St. Louis Star! You will need  four copies of  the corner square, four copies of  the A and A-Rev units and one copy of each of the B units per block you want to make printed on very lightweight paper.



After you have paper pieced all the units, join A and A-Rev units along the center seam, using as always a 1/4" seam allowance. Press allowance to one side. Make four units like this...

Then sew the B and B-Rev units together, pressing seam to one side...

Now just piece the block as shown at left! Alternate pressing directions by row, so that seams will be staggered and lay flat!
