Evening Star Lady Guidelines www.orgsites.com/mi/esq

1. Before backing the block, it should measure approximately 9”. The finished block should measure 8 ½”. Add whatever embellishment(s) you would like to the face, dress, and background to make it individually yours.

2. Assemble the block using any method of choice, and feel free to change the style of shoes, hands, etc., as long as the overall picture essentially remains the same. It is important to keep the arms extended at the level they are at, as all of our “stars” will be joining hands when hung. (The following “Paper Pieced Pattern” includes a ¼” seam allowance, and can be cut out and assembled accordingly.)

3. Using batting and backing fabric, layer the batting down first, then the backing and top, right sides

together. Sew all layers, leaving an opening on the bottom to turn inside out.

4. Quilt as desired.

5. Slip stitch the bottom opening, and add your very own special details.

6. Make a rod pocket that is 1” × 8” finished, and attach it to the very top of the block on the back.

7. Along the bottom, sign your name, your town, and the date that you joined the Evening Star Quilters.

8. When finished, bring the completed block to the next guild meeting so your very own “star” will have an

opportunity to shine!
