6. Add Inside Red Border

Stitch one 12.5" x 1.5" red strip to the bottom and top edges of the appliqued block, stitching right sides together. Press seams. 
The finished block (with red border) should now measure 12.5" square.


7. Add Star Point Side Borders


Christmas star appliqueNOTE: I think the star point border adds a nice touch. If you do not wish to work with points, you can create a solid outer border. 

For solid border (in place of the star point border):
Cut two 12.5" x 2.5" strips for the side borders, and two 16.5" x 2.5" strips for the top and bottom borders.

For star point border:
Cut four 2.5" yellow square. Set aside.

Cut twelve 3" yellow squares. Cut twelve 3" white squares.

Cut all 3" squares on the diagonal. Stitch a white triangle to a yellow triangle. Repeat until you have 24 yellow/white squares. 

Square down each yellow/white square to create 2.5" squares.


Christmas quilt block border Arrange six diagonal blocks as shown. Stitch blocks together, right sides together. Press seams. Repeat until you have four rows like the ones shown.

Note that the white points point AWAY from the main block.

Stitch a solid block to the each end of the two remaining triangle rows. Stitch a triangle row (with solid block ends) to the top and bottem edges of the quilt block, right sides together. Refer to the first photo in step 8. Press seams. 

Note that the white points always point AWAY from the main block.


8. Add Outer Red Borders

Assemble and Bind Finished Piece


Refer to Assemble & Bind Lesson to learn how to assemble, bind and add a hanging sleeve to your finished quilt or wallhanging.

Hanging Sleeve Size
Cut the hanging sleeve fabric 3" x 15.5". Press under each short end 1/4" to create hem on each end; stitch hems.

Refer to Hanging Sleeve Lesson for directions on finishing the hanging sleeve.

Also see Halloween Cat Project for instructions on finishing a layered or quilted piece. The Halloween wall hanging is part of this series, so the sleeve is made in the same way.
