To make one star block, you will need:
1 center square, 2″ x 2″
4 squares for the star points, 1 5/8″ x 1 5/8″
1 background square, 2 3/4″ x 2 3/4″
4 background squares, 1 1/4″ x 1 1/4″
Make six star blocks.
To begin, make flying geese units with the large background square, and four small squares for points.
Layer two small squares over the diagonal of the large background square. Mark the diagonal or use your guide beam to sew 1/4″ away from both sides of the center line.
Cut them apart through the center, and press away from the background fabric. Layer the remaining small squares as shown, and again sew 1/4″ away from the center line.
Cut apart through the center, and press away from the background fabric. Trim to 1 1/4″ x 2″, as needed.

Layout the block as shown. Sew the units into rows, press the center row toward the center, and the remaining rows out.
Pin and sew the rows together, press toward the center to complete the block.
