The stars are pieced, 9 pieces in all. I just drew a square the size I needed. Then I drew a star in that square. I divided the star/square into 9 sections. Once the sections were cut apart, a 1/4 inch seam allowance was added to each edge. Using plastic graph sheets makes this step easier and then you have nice templates for cutting out your fabrics.
The outside boarder is stripes. Mitering the corners is a little tricky but worth the extra effort.
The picot edging is made from all the star fabrics and adds a cute finish to the quilt.
All my Baby quilts are 40 x 60. I just can't seem to adjust to anything else.
