This is a two block quilt! A
modified puss in the corner block, and an hour glass star block, both
in 8" finished size. You can make this quilt as big or small as you
would like depending on the number of blocks you make. This quilt
uses 45 star blocks and 45 puss blocks. The 90 blocks are set 9 across
by 10 down. Of course you can make the quilt smaller depending on the
number of blocks you make

students who might not have printer access, making sure that everyone

scrappy neutrals. The sky is the limit!
