Carnival Ride 02: starting to draft
Take a sheet of paper the finished size of your block - this is 16" - and divide vertically, horizontally and diagonally as shown.
If you measure from the centre point where all the lines cross to the centre side, that is the length of your bigger star piece, here 8" [On a 12" block it would be 6"]. Measure from the centre along the 4 diagonals and mark the 8" point as shown.
Now place your ruler on each centre side in turn and on the alternate diagonal 8" point and draw a line stopping as soon as you meet another line. Here I am working my way round and drawing in a clockwise direction - you can do either but you need to be consistent. At the end of this step four of your bigger star points have been drawn.
