    There seems to be some interest in this pattern in some discussions. I make this with no plastic template needed. It is great from 5"squares. I put it in PDF format to make it easy to save to your computer.

    It is super simple, and great for scraps and charms....the only down fall is that if you are cutting from a strip there is a bit more waste as you can't rotate a template, but you can use the idea to make a plastic template. I went to the local radiology lab and asked for their old discarded x-rays. They gave me big bunch..enough for a life time. Anyway it is a sturdy translucent plastic that I can draw templates on and just cut out with a scissors. Call around I will bet you find some no good x-rays that would other wise end up in a dump. It also makes good stiffener for fabric boxes.
    I am going to work on some more template free patterns for charm squares ...I have two figured out already.....
