First, I apologize for not knowing where I got the photo--it was either here or somewhere on the 'net. I liked the pattern and would like to make something similar. I am a fairly new quilter but thought I could figure this out. I decided the small squares within the larger square would be 4 1/2" (so the finished center block would be 12" finished) and I don't have any problem figuring out most of the pieces.

The pieces that are puzzling me are the rectangles with the 45 degree angle/triangle on the end. Of course, I have already cut the fabric and the sizes are wrong! :oops: I thought starting with a 4 1/2 x 2 1/2" rectangle and sewing a 2 1/2" square diagonally at the top would do the trick but I certainly thought wrong!

I would greatly appreciate any help with my dilemma. (This table runner is a fabric exchange and quilt challenge with my local quilt guild. Maybe I should have chosen something simpler!)

Thanks so much.
