Day 11 was Monday, the last day of their break. We made it!! Kelsey has been wanting to go to work with Matt for a year or so, so she took the chance on Monday. She had a good day and loved watching Matt do surgeries all morning, but by the afternoon she was a bit bored. I told her to take a book, but I am pretty sure she played on Matt's computer all afternoon! Either way, both of them enjoyed the time together.
First I drew a star on a 10 inch square of freezer paper. I then cut out the star into 9 pieces. I found nice fat quarters of red and white fabrics in my stash, and ironed them. I then placed the two fat quarters together, one one top of the other, and arranged the 9 star pieces of freezer paper on top. The great thing about freezer paper is that it sticks when ironed, so I ironed my freezer paper pattern onto the fat quarters, making sure to leave at least a 1/2 inch in between the pieces.
Then I cut out the pieces leaving 1/4 inch seam allowance on all the inside edges. You can leave a 1/4 inch on all sides of the pieces, but I wanted to have more red as a borderish look.
I removed the red pieces of the actual 4 star pieces, so it left the last layer of white as the star.
Here are the two blocks I ended up with. This one is for Beth, she wanted a red star and a white background.
