The last block....

The last block on Mom's quilt has 32 pieces in it, and is 8" x 8" square when finished.  Here are a few photos of the process...

Chain piecing the squares together...sewing a 1/4" on each side of the line.

Cutting apart the squares once sewn on both sides.....cut down the line.

After ironing the new half-squares I trim them down to 2-1/2" square, 16 total.

Laying out the pattern of the star from the trimmed down squares......for sewing together.

Here they are along the top of the quilt.  Sorry my flash decided to quit working.

TA DA!  Quilt done, well almost, now it has to be quilted and bound......but real close!  The hardest part is done.

I hope Mom loves it.  I'll share pictures after it is quilted and bound.
