2. Sew
the short gold 1-1/2" borders to opposite sides of the center block and
the long 1-1/2" borders to the top/bottom of the center block. Sew (2)
side borders with (5) red and (4) blue 2-1/2" squares. Join to opposite sides
of the center star. Sew (2) top/bottom borders with (6) blue and (5) red 2-1/2"
