Esther's blocks 1-9
Stars in Her Crown
We've made a block for all nine Victorian children. Esther's looks great just
as it is but you may want to add a border.
Some outrageous Victorian inspired chintz would be fun like this

Or piece a border, continuing the star theme.

Denniele Bohannon's 9 blocks

Denniele's with border
Mark Lauer's finished quilt.
Here's a drawing of the pieced border, which continues the four-pointed
star out to the edge.
You get 3 sheets this week
8-inch border - 1 sheet
Above, the pattern for the 8" version.
All three triangular templates for the smaller blocks fit on one page whether you are template piecing or piecing over paper. The finished quilt will be 32" x 32".
12-inch border - 2 sheets
Finished quilt = 48" x 48"
The larger version 12" is pushing the limits of an 8-1/2" x 11" piece of paper. The templates
work fine but but for paper piecing below I'm trying to fit a 12" line on an 11-1/2" sheet of paper.
Good luck! Your corners might get cut off. If you have an 8-1/2" x 14" piece of paper it would work better.
