Summer Sampler Block 2

This week is my second block in this year's #summersampler2016.  Click here to link through and buy the Summer Sampler-  if you're interested in joining in - you can catch up at any time.  This Block is called Tiled Stars and will show you how to make quarter square triangles to make the four ohio stars in the block.


And one thing I love to do with any new block is to multiply it up a few times and see what kind of a quilt it would make - this quilt would be 73" square.
