I pulled 4 fun fabrics from my pile of sunshine that I think will really jump off the black and white background fabric.

During the month a few of you sent in sweet notes, asking about my machine and for more information about that cool laser beam feature. So, I want to take a minute before we dive into sewing, to share a quick snap shot of my machine set up.

Machine set up for HST's on Baby Lock Destiny

This way, if you happen to have a Baby Lock Destiny II like me, these machine settings can help you create the perfect HST’s every time without drawing the center marking line. Select the number 3 stitch, turn on guide beam and position it to 10.0 mm.  I like to keep the guide beam positioned along the center of the unit and sew to the left of each side of the beam. This helps me create two perfect HST units from one set of squares.

Once your HST units are made it’s all about stitching each units together. It’s important to keep a watchful eye on pressing direction and nesting seams. Star Bright Block | Heartland Heritage

The arrows included on the pattern instructions are very helpful and will ensure that everything will finish flat.

It’s not often that I flip the blocks over  to show you the back but I thought it was worth the photo.

Now, before you head off to make your blocks be sure to check out Amy’s tips for making the perfect hour glass units. Then you are good to go! To complete the Heartland Heritage pattern you will need to make 5 barnyard blocks and we would love to see them.  Be sure to share a picture of your finished Star Bright block with us here.
