Background Fabric:
Cut 4 squares 4" x 4"
Cut 8 squares 3" x 3"

Star Fabric:
Cut 4 rectangles 3" x 6-1/2"
Cut 4 rectangles 3" x 4"

Place a 3" background square on a 3" x  6-1/2" star rectangle.  Mark the 3" square diagonally from top left to bottom right and sew directly on mark.  Trim off excess and press towards the darker fabric.  Do the same thing to the 3" x 4" rectangle.  Once finished, you will have this:
Be sure that the diagonal seams make a V when you place the larger one beside the smaller one as above.

Sew a 4" background square to the smaller rectangle. 

Sew the larger rectangle to the bottom of each of these 4 sections and you will end up with this:

Sew together as a four patch and you are finished with Block No. 2.
Makes me want to buy a jelly roll and make a whole quilt!!
