Did you ever do a tut on these? I remember seeing this post and just looked it up again as I am now in the market for one. Would you mind sharing a few measurements such as how wide the back collar piece is. I love this idea and think I will finally have time to make one. Thanks

Thanks,

Seen it; made it; love it! Simple too! There is a pattern in the PS I Love YOU 2 book called Jacks.
All you do is take 8 same size squares.
Fold 4 of them into triangles, like you do for Praire Points. (fold the square in half and then half again to create the triangle)
Next, take a square with "right side of fabric" facing up, and place one folded triangle on the square . Match the raw edges of the two pieces at the bottom edge and pin in place. (The "open" fold of the triangle should be on the left hand side.)
Now take a second folded triangle and place it onto the right edge of the square, with the "open" fold of both triangles creating a straight diagonal line. Pin in place. (The triangles will now cover the lower right half of the square.
Next take a square and position it on top to "sandwich" the triangles. The square pieces will be right sides together.
Sew along the right edge catching both squares and one triange in a quarter inch seam.
REPEAT.
Now take the two sewn pieces and place them right sides together. The triangle pieces that are still only pinned in place will be on the same edge.
Sew the pinned edge with a quarter inch seam.
Open and press a triangle onto each square of the block. YOU ARE DONE!

A friend made a quilt with these blocks and used a sashing to join them; I made a quilt alternating these blocks with plain squares; and I also made a quilt using these to surround a fabric panel. Just love these blocks!
