Block of the Month {Twin Star} Month 5

**If you've been following along since the beginning this block was not in the original pattern. I have decided to switch a few of the blocks out so this quilt project stays at a beginner level.**
 Twin Star
From background fabric cut 4 - 4 1/2"x 4 1/2" squares.
From one of your two prints cut 1 - 4 1/2"x 4 1/2" square. This will be the center of your star.
From your background print and the print that is the same as the star center cut from each 1 - 5 1/4"x 5 1/4" square.
Cut both of the two 5 1/4" squares in quarters.
From your second print cut 2 - 4 7/8"x 4 7/8" squares.
Cut them both in half diagonally.
From your triangles that you cut in quarters sew them into four triangle sets, as shown above.
Sew the four triangle units to the four red triangles. You will have four units that look like the one above.
Sew the block together in three rows.
Press the seams as shown in the image above, top and bottom out and center block in.
Sew the three rows together and there you have your beautiful Twin Star. 

All blocks in this quilt should be unfinished at 12 1/2"x 12 1/2"
