    One Block Wonder - series of three books by Maxine Rosenthal.
    Go to "Topic Lists" at bottom right of page, there you will find a topic dedicated to OBWs, Stack and Whack and kaleidoscope quilts, with information and examples made by members of the Board.
    The books are available at Amazon.com

    You picked perfect fabric, I love looking at these quilts.
    Enjoy the Art!
    If you have the first book "One Block Wonders", chapter 5 on Octagon quilts gives details on cutting the setting squares and incorporating them so as to make the octagon into a square.

    It's not a pattern, but a method contained in the book One Block Wonders by Maxines Rosenthal. The book gives very clear pictorial instruction on layering repeats, cutting and construction, info on choosing suitable fabric, quantities and design possibilities. Once you have your blocks, you make your own layout/design features.
    There are two further books on the method with additional design features, and they are all available from Amazon.com
