My Block Piecer: Block 11 Crazy Star – Sewing Instructions

My Block Piecer
Block of the Month: Block 11 Crazy Star
Sewing Instructions

Block 11, Crazy Star, is a two-unit block in the My Block Piecer Sampler Block of the Month. As you know, My Block Piecer splits some blocks into smaller units when a patch shares seam allowances with more than one patch. Piece the two units in one hooping and sew together on a sewing machine with ¼” seam allowance. In the software instructions for Block 11, we merged the two separate units into one embroidery design and combined the placement guides for both of the units into the first color of the merged design.

Hoop tear-away stabilizer in a large hoop. Retrieve the merged Block 11 Crazy Star design on the machine. Stitch color 1, the placement guides for both units.
