I swear I saw this tutorial here, can't find it now. If you look at the quilt block in my avatar picture, the center is a square on point, surrounded by a triangle on each side.
The tutorial showed a picture where (I thought) you cut two squares of the same size, one for your center on point square and one for the triangles.
You turn them so the right sides are facing each other, then sew them together, like so. (Here's hoping I do this right.)

Sorry, I had to make a picture in Windows Paint, since I can't find my camera. Paint has its limitations; when unfolded, those triangles are neat and make a square of their own.
Problem is, it includes their seam allowance. Once I sew that to the rectangles (the blue pieces in my avatar pic), it cuts off the tips of the center square.
Anyone know where that tutorial is, so I can take another look?
