The tutorial for the block above is as follows:
Cutting direction :
1 Piece of slightly darker solid measuring 5 1/4" square
1 piece of light solid measuring 5 1/4" square
2 pieces of printed measuring 5 1/4" square
4 Pieces of light solid measuring 4 1/2" square
1 center square (can be fussy cut) printed measuring 4 1/2" square
Stack all the 5 1/4" squares and slash through the diagonals so that you will have 4 triangles from each squares.
Pair up one solid triangle with one printed triangle and chain piece all of them making sure you will end up with the solid triangle on the right hand side.
Piece the two large triangle together as the photo below forming a square.
Square up the patched piece into 4 1/2" square
Arrange all the 4 1/2" squares and piece them as aroows shown in the photo below forming three rows.
Piece the three rows together
And voila! You are done! Press seams, and trim to 12.5" square
Hope you have fun making the block! As always, don't forget to add your version to littlemushroomcap flickr group!
Will be posting on the quilting soon!
