I drew out the entire "Primitives I" sampler quilt. The quilt is a no sashing between blocks quilt. Your first block is actually six blocks. You got that right? One equals six, and those six will be the first and only row. You may actually begin, and wait for the applique diagram, which I can do via photo download. That will get us started. Ok, pay close attention.
For what is coming your way, select a nice variety of dark backgrounds. You will have 12 blocks puzzled together, some touching as many as 6 other blocks. Your 1st block (copied for 6 total) begins with cutting width of fabric (WOF-40") into 2-1.5" strips of light, and 2-1.5" strips of dark. Sew a light to a dark strip to make 2 sets. Now your strips should measure 40ish x 2.5". Press to the dark. Lay it out running side to side long ways and cut across the narrow part every 2.5" for a total of 18-2.5" squares. Align the seams vertical (up and down). Sew 3 squares together light to a dark, all seams veritcal (up and down) to create a row 2.5 x 6.5", light, dark, light, dark, light dark. You need six of these. Sew a 6.5" square of background fabric to the 6.5" side of your "checkered" strip. Applique primitive star to each 6.5" square. Each block is now 8.5" high x 6.5" wide. Sew your six blocks together on the 8.5" sides, alternating the checkered strip top, bottom, top, bottom, top, bottom.
I'm going to draw this to scale, color it in, and show you your block after I take a pic of it. Give me an hour. Then you can see what these instructions mean.
