A Fat Quarter of each is a generous amount 1 Background Solid, mine is white.  2 Medium Prints, OR contrasting solids.  For our purposes, they will be labeled BG (back ground) P1 (print 1) and P2 (print 2). The entire star consists of twelve   2 1/2" HST's (half square triangles) and 4 solid blocks. Our block will finish at 8". Cutting: Cut two 6 1/2" squares each of P1 and P2.  Cut two 6 1/2" squares of BG Cut  four 2 1/2" squares of BG Let's make the HST's. Here is the roughly drawn chart I go by when I'm making 2 1/2" HST's I will be using the 6 1/2" square grid to make 8 of each BG + P1 and Bg + P2, and P1 + P2. Yes it will make 8 of each but I will end up making more blocks with these. First draw a 3" grid on the back of the lightest fabric of bot
