I used HSTs or Half Square Triangles in this tutorial. Here is my cut down method for making HSTs
while playing on my EQ5 the other day I started changing the color on a quilt block I had used in another Color Play tutorial I had written

I chose Hobbs 80/20 batting and quilted it with what is know as freehand "Terry Twist" stitching. The quilt measures 87 by 106. It is also the first quilt that I attached the binding on with my longarm. Haven't yet stitched

The pattern is called Indian Hatchet--I found it in an old Patchwork book I found at a used book store. I adapted it to paper piecing and increased the size to a 12 inch block.

I'll make a few more like this and then some hot pads... those should be more fun because you can vary the blocks and the fabrics!
Edit: The sides aren't really crooked, I guess I just didn't lay it down flat on the floor properly...

This is a very old, classic pattern. It's 2.5" squares that are sewn together to make a 6.5" unfinished 9-patch. The "snowballs" are 6.5" squares that have 2.5" white squares laid on each corner and sewn diagonally. You cut off the excess fabric and it makes each square have white corners. You sew the 6.5" snowballs alternately with the 9-patches, and viola! 6" finished blocks, and make as many as you need.

i put similar flooring in two bedrooms and the hall, where you had to put down a seperate under pad. the floor in the hallway keeps moving and seperating, as you leave 1/4 inch around the outside so it can float, and FLOAT it DOES.
this new flooring has the under pad attached, so thinking it won't

Can you tell me where to get the pattern or the dimension of your squares. Thanks!
