A dozen 12" blocks fit like the white square shown.
Sashing finishes to 5" strips.
A single blue border finishes to 2-1/2".

  • Cut the blue strips 2-1/2" x 12-1/2" (need 2 per set) 
  • Cut the red strips 1-1/2" x 12-1/2" (need 1 per set
Cutting the 5" Stars for the Cornerstones

You need 6 of this color arrangement

Or Rotary Cutting Each Piece from EQ8

You'll see the Union Stars are variable stars in coloring.

You need 20 stars total in three colorways. The large triangle in the star changes from blue to red depending on where it intersects the red strips.
The Border

This looks like it will be a wonderful sashing. Thanks for providing it Barbara and thanks to Denniele for sharing it so generously.
