This border is 3 inches wide and has a 3-inch repeat. For each star unit, sew A to A (4 times). Rows 1 and 3 -- Sew B to AA; add B (2 times). Row 2 -- Sew AA to B; add AA. Sew Rows 1, 2, and 3 together to make one star unit. Make star units for the desired length of the quilt. Add a CCC unit to each corner.
