 Cowboy's Star diagram

 

This easy-to-draw template is based on Nancy Page's 1938 block from the Birmingham News. We left the grid lines (pink) so you can see for yourself. Using a grid, you can draw it to the size you like instead of printing it out.

 

Cut the finished diagram apart on the lines, and remember to add seam allowances when you use the template pieces as pattern pieces.

The black lines that don't end on grid intersections are parallel to neighboring lines that do.
