    I can see it as the 5 minute block or tall/skinny 10 minute block. Use the light blue on one side and the white on the other with the dark blue as the center. Then do the roll back and stitch to form the curve.

    Thanks.
    It looks to be a 60 degree diamond split in half lengthwise.

    It looks like it is fairly easy to vary this -

    Isn't this Jacobs ladder. Sure looks it to me and is the easiest square to do. I made a lap quilt in all the same square but different shade of beige, cream and other fall colors. Love it.

    After looking at this through a magnifying strip I think it is a square and x's I will attemp to attach a picture.Well I can't figure out how to post a picture.
    Can anyone help? If you take a sheet of graph paper and draw a square and then turn it on a diagonal, draw a straight line from the top of the square through the centers of the next few squars, you will have the edge of your border. Then do the same for the bottom of th square.
    then draw an x along side it another square and another x. I think you will end up with needing a 1/2 square triangle in the top and bottom of the x. Sorry I can't get the picture in but I do not see a "tree" anywhere to click on.

    On some screens/computers, one can enlarge the image by holding the control key and the plus key at the same time.

    I think it can be 'stretched' or 'compacted' to fit whatever - and then angles would change then

    I agree with easypeesy, I think it is done with the squares and half square triangles, rather than the diamonds. When it is sketched on the graph paper this way, it looks more like what shows in the photo. This would be half of the Jacob's Ladder, yes. I do like this border, it looks very nice!

    I believe UFOs are like scraps, ferns and dust bunnies. Once you get two, they send spores out into the air and more just happen anywhere the spores meet.

    Here I am again with a better drawing. I think this is the design if you look closely with a magnifying sheet held up to the screen. Name:  x border.jpg
