DS QAL: Lesson 2 – Block 24

Delightful Stars Quilt-Along

Welcome everyone to our second star block lesson for the Delightful Stars Quilt-Along (DS QAL).

Over the past week, I’ve been working on the construction drawings for each block. This task has resulted in a few minor changes to the original quilt design. Here’s the final version:


This week’s lesson is Block #24:


The construction tips for last week’s Block 18 apply to this week’s block too. One additional tip is to fold the nine-patch block in half in both directions and finger press or mark in the seam allowance the centre of the block at all four edges. Use this centre mark to align the point of the flying geese units when attaching them to the nine-patch.

The subject will say “Update for 2014 Delightful Stars Quilt-Along” .. and inside the message is “Download file: View Purchase Online”. When you click that “View Purchase Online” link, your web browser will open and you will have a screen that looks similar to the one below with the Big Blue Download button. Click that button and save the file to your computer’s hard drive.


If you joined the QAL through Craftsy, the updated file is available now in your Craftsy Library for you to download. You may or may not get an email from Craftsy advising you of the updated file. This isn’t something I have any control over. You may wish to check what email address you have on file with them and also your notification settings. You do not need to wait for the email, login to your Craftsy account (on a computer, not phone/tablet), go to My Craftsy (if you aren’t there already), then on left side click My Patterns. Find the Delightful Stars pattern and download the file. See Craftsy Help if needed.
