    That's super simple. It is just HST ( half square triangles)!!!

    I have a feeling it is not hst. I think it could be diamonds .which means if you make strips of Grey white grey white at 21/2inch strips then cut diagonally at. I think 60* help someone is that right for a diamond .and alternate.

    Hope this is correct as it is easy.

    If you look closely, you can see the seam lines. Definitely HST.

    Trust us, they are HSTs. Don't overthink it.

    Here's a tutorial for this - altho the colors are different - and you'll see they are HST's...
    I say use your favorite colors, your favorite way of making a BUNCH of HST's and have fun!
    This is a super quick quilt to make and each one is great looking!

    Here you go DOTTYMO - HST and then just turned so there is none of the same color touching.

    Thank you ladies, now I can begin cutting and sewing with confidence -

    It is called Ombre Herringbone and the post by WTxRed indicated the following website: http://www.rileyblakedesigns.com/blo...rringbone-qui/
    which is the pattern I am looking for.

    I knew I could count on the expertise which is found on this QB, again thanks for your help.

    Donna Jean, I'm so glad that you posted this - what a cool quilt!

    Dottymo, it had me fooled, too. I thought they were diamonds, too! I'm so glad they are not! :-)

    I recommend that you try the tutorial from Missouri Star Quilts that Alleyoop1 just gave you a link to. I have not sandwiched mine yet, as another quilt took priority, but I made the quilt top and have the backing ready on my turq. and white chevron quilt that I made using this same tutorial. Goes together quickly and is a very easy pattern. I love how it came out. I will be giving it to a BFF for Christmas, so I am not in such a big rush to get it completed right away as I have some time yet. Mine will be a very large quilt, will fit nicely on top of a king size bed. I did not put a border on the quilt, as I like how it turned out without a border.

    I see that it is made of HSTs - but I would try it in chevrons so there would be fewer seams.

    There is another method....I've seen on the net and in a magazine. Using 4 1/2 X 2 1/2inch rectangles . Two vertical and two horizontal. The horizontal under the second vertical. after all, it is just right angles . Sizes can vary.

    Definitely HSTs - but what a good example of how the eye can be fooled by the quilting lines.

    You can see the sewing lines for th e HST, the thing is the color used to make it the right color.

    They are definitely HST, and Jenny Doan does perfect tutorials (Missouri Star Quilt Company).
