July 1998’s block was a Log Cabin with an appliquéd star.
The finished block measures 8 1/2 inches square (9 inches unfinished).
An alternate method might be to begin with a 2 1/2 inch paper pieced star, then add the “logs.”
Your finished (unfinished) block should measure nine inches. Be sure to leave the seam allowance on the block, DO NOT cut it to the 8 1/2 inch finished size -- as the “finished” measurement represents the block size after it is sewn into a quilt top.
