Four Point Star Paper Pieces
These shapes are named for the star they make when you fit 4 together with the shortest edges pointing in. They make a lovely setting for octagons of the same edge length, as you can see in the picture. Four Point Stars are measured by their long edge, and have a 90 degree angle at the centre of the star. If you would like these shapes but measured by the short edge, go to 45 degree Kites.
For perhaps over 400 years, English Paper Piecing has been used to make beautiful, heirloom quilts. It’s meditative, portable, simple, and perfect for fabric scraps or fussy cutting.
All of our paper pieces are laser cut for accuracy from high-quality 100% post consumer, recycled paper, and packaged in recycled and recyclable packaging. The quantities in each packet are determined by the most efficient way to cut a large sheet of paper.
The shapes in the first picture are 2 1/2" Four Point Stars with 2 1/2" 8 Point Diamonds. The following quilts are made from 1 1/2" Four Point Stars and 1 1/2" Octagons.
