You will see the numbers above each rectangle in the pic above - the outer rectangles are 2 1/2" x 3 3/4" and the center one is 2 1/2" x 4 1/4". They can be longer just means you'll have more to trim off.

I was thinking that this would work well with the 2 1/2" strips they sell.

The center rectangle is a bit longer than the outer ones. the length doesn't really matter as long as you are longer than needed rather than shorter. I was just trying to get a rectangle that wasn't going to leave too much fabric leftovers. The width of the yellow is important or you will have a wider star point in the middle and that may make you lose the side fabrics when the squares are sewn together.

I have alot of free quilt blocks posted you can use these with. Let me see if I can round them up and give you links to find them all.
