So here's how I would go about it -- I used an 8-pointed ruler (Quilt in a Day triangle in this case) and folded paper and treated this more like a Lemoyne Star variation than a Dresden Plate.

The first scan shows my folded quarter with outlines drawn, using blades that are about 1.5" wide, it is a large block, about 12". I didn't show the pointy ends on my scan, I'd probably make it easy on myself by just sewing on oversized squares along the diagonal to have enough to trim off, but you could make tiny little flying geese units if you wanted, or maybe consider some texture with prairie points.

The second shows half the block, the darker lines are 1" blades.

edit: you can make the quarters any size you want with those 1" blades, just adjusting the points (or skipping them is easiest and gives you substantially the same look).
