Simple Blocks – Star X

Star X, or The Silent Star, is both a variation of Ohio Star and of the Swamp Angel block. It has five QST units but unlike the last block it has Half-Square Triangle (HST) units instead of plain squares. You can download the tutorial pages for both these units from our tutorials page and the instructions for the block here.

Try playing with the block colourings and settings as before to see what you can make – there are lots of opportunities for play with the shapes in this block.
