the grids of the diamond in a star quilt blockThe center section of the Sawtooth Star quilt block has just been subdivided.  As you can see from the picture with the grids on the left, this is still a 4-patch block that has been subdivided into 16 sections.  However, the Diamond in a Square unit takes up the center 4 patches.


If you want each patch to finish at 2 inches, your block will finish at 8 inches.  Review the link on how to size and make the Diamond in a Square quilt block for the center, and then proceed following the instructions for the Sawtooth Star quilt block.
