I spent a good hour trying to figure out the layout last night, this will be a big help.

Stitchinbee's directions were very helpful.

I have a friend who's having twin grandkids next year and I think I'll make this again. I may use just one color for the inner star and a different one for the outer star, switching colors for the second quilt.
