    Good friends are like stars; you don't always see them, but you know they're always there!

    As nativetexan stated, you can make it from any size HST. Here's one I made with 12" squares:

    A carpenter's wheel is 8 squares by 8 squares. This is a simple 8 point star.

    But this was made wth 5" squares...2 of each of 3 different colors. Then they are sewn into 3 squares.....each of the 6 squares sewn RST to one of the other colors....giving you the 3 squares. They are each then cut on the diagonal each way and then sewn together. It is then finished with 4 corner squares.

    I'm sorry if this sounds confusing but I don't know how else to explain it....but it was such a simple block to make.
