Creative Grids - Week #2 - Strippy Stars

This week's Creative Grids class focused on the "Strippy Stars Ruler," Designed by Deb Heatherly, CCRDH2.  The companion book, "Strippy Stars," is a very good book that shows all of the stars that can be made with the ruler and all of the instructions are included.

The difference between these stars and the Ohio Star Blocks is the legs of the Strippy Stars are longer.  On the Ohio Stars the legs are exactly half of the of the center piece.

Jill gave us enough fabric to make one 4" Strippy Star.

We used the 4-inch mark on the ruler to make the block above.  It is an 8-inch square block.

I used the 1 1/2-inch mark on the ruler to make this 5-inch block.

Making the 8-inch block was very easy to make.  Our homework for the next Creative Grids class is to make four blocks again.  I can't wait to do it.
