Here is another one of my original designs.
You will see the quilt block and then under that is the layout of all the individual blocks.
Pay attention to where the colors are and how the blocks are turned.
To make this quilt block you will need a 2 1/2" template
You will also need to learn to make my Star Point Blocks
there are 4 diamonds(background color) in the center of the star points. You could put a color in there if you chose. sometimes I do and sometimes I leave it the background color.
I prefer to use the squares on the outside rows because I get a better more accurate quilt block. but if you would prefer to use a strip in place of those 4 squares you are more than welcome to do so. It's your quilt block do it how you are most comfortable.
And here is a quilt suggestion. This was created on my EQ5 software
