    I will tell how I sewed blocks for that quilt - http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-50511-1.htm

    My English is not too good but I will try :D .

    I did not use special rulers for this block. I had only a triangular ruler and usual square ruler at my order.
    I didi it anyway. :D

    However, my pictures are detailed so I hope you will understand all only on photos.

    All strips on pictures have width 1 1/2 inches, the size of squares is 4 inches.

    Step 1.
    To cut a light strip on a trapezes:
    (Length of the short party of each trapeze - 1 3/4 inches, the long party - 4 3/4 inches.)

    Hi CAROLJ ! :-)

    Then to repeat first six steps having changed a dark and light fabric. It means to cut a dark fabric on a trapeze and to sew them to light strips. Also to cut light squares on triangles.

    After that it is possible to collect the block.
    The first variant:
