    From the pictures, it looks like each white rectangle and each red rectangle is 2" x 5". I think the triangles are 6"? Then it looks like she trims these blocks down to 6 1/2", and once 4 are sewn together, it forms a 12 1/2" unfinished (12" finished) block.

    Sorry I used these as pictures in a workshop. I ask what they see in the picture , a wrong line would b e for them to find as all quilters can do the diagonal join.
    I also try to not say this is the correct and only way
    Widths 2" by 6 " for rectangles
    The large triangle was a square halved .
    I did make al. Pieces much larger for mistakes and to change sizes.

    Look at the cutting board and the inch marking lines.
    Thank you all for the comments.

    That looks a lot like Deb Tucker's method, without her ruler. Which I have and have never used.

    WOW, Thank you for this tut. When I looked at your pictures, I thought, Now why didn't I think of that. Again thank you. I can't wait to get started with this block.

    I am brand new to this site. LOVE your approach! I have been drooling over the hunter star for a long time, but haven't mastered the bias edge or scant 1/4" enough to try. Taking apart a quilt now that was supposed to be a wedding gift. The blocks came out different sizes from 15"-17" (kind impossible to make that work). Anyway, this really short circuts bias issues from the look of it. I could not tell what size your finished squares (which became triangles) were, as that pic was a little distorted. I'm also kicking around some thoughts to cut down on waste a little bit, because I LOVE your concept.
