Star BOM Block 2

I knew Judy was supposed to post Block 3 today, and sure enough she did. Last night I figured I'd better get it in gear and get Block 2 done. I thought I might have a little trouble with the mitered corners of the green fabric strips, so I sewed mine a little differently. I sewed the green strips to the yellow triangles first, pressed the seams open, trimmed up the resulting triangles, and then sewed the four triangle units together like an hourglass block. Worked like a charm, and the seams match perfectly!

Credit where credit is due:
This block is a variation of the "Card Basket" block , which can be found in the EQ6 Block Library and is copyright-free.

I thought of sewing the strips to the triangles after I already finished mine, and I wondered how that would work. Great job, and great ingenuity!
