Of all of the 'Founding Fathers', Benjamin Franklin is perhaps the most instrumental in establishing the new nation. He had fought for her, defended her, and signed for her! Four documents bear the wise old man's autograph: The Declaration of Independence (1776), the Treaty of Alliance (1778), the Treaty of Paris (1783), and the Constitution of the United States of America (1787)...
Following Block 23's instructions, make four 6 1/2-inch Autograph Star blocks to represent the four founding documents Benjamin Franklin signed, using scraps cut to the measurements as indicated. Note that the BB units and the B/C units are slightly over-sized; the Beige/Blue (B/C) units will be trimmed to 2-inches square once sewn. (If you have trouble sewing small pieces, cut the pieces larger, sew, the trim to the correct size.) Follow Block 23's on-line tutorial to construct the blocks.
