Default MSQC rhombus start quilt

Hello... I saw where MSQC had the star quilt pattern using the rhombus template

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h17ta6t_K-8

The video is using the large template. Do you know if MSQC has a video for using the small rhombus template? Jenny mentions the small template in this video but no directions are given

I can probably figure it out on my own, but I prefer directions if I can find them

I forgot to add:
Measure the distance of the parallel sides of the tool. Thisshould be the width of the fabric to cut the rhombus.

Wouldn't the instructions be the same no matter the size of the rhombus?

Geri B I was thinking the same thing. I remember watching the video and seeing how she came up with the size to cut her material....would think the same applies to the small template.

Forgot to add, that I'm the same about wanting directions to be clear , just thinking if one rule of thumb pertains that it should be easy to figure out.

I made a half star using the rhombus for a border. It's a nice template to have.

I can agree with this except for the size of the strip to cut. I always amaze myself how I can mismeasure and mess things up ha ha

I appreciate everyone's thoughts on this sometime I will get the courage to try it. I will just use scraps first.

I'm pre kitting the Star Rhumbus quilt to take to retreat. It is easy to sew without having to concentrate a lot on it. It makes a dramatic quilt using red white and blue for the stars.
