    This is setting that I use for exchange blocks that are different sizes. Try Googling "wonky" quilt block settings.

    Looks as though they have mage a block with partial seams as each square has 4 different colours around it http://learnhowtoquilt.com/quilt-tut...partial-seams/, it looks as though the centre square is around 5" and maybe try your strips at around 2 1/2 " and then you need to get a square template (similar to how you would use and x blocks template http://www.kiwiquilts.co.nz/site/kiw...20Oct%2008.pdf ) to cut your wonky square.
    I would have a play and see how you go.
    The biggest risk is the one not taken

    Something like this may help you get started:

    It's not exactly the same but it may give you some ideas.

    I want to say fons and porter calls it a tilted block. It looks like that to me. Good luck!

    I really like this quilt!!!
    I hope someone can tell us the name. It looks like a square and then long triangles.

    As my DH wants to move this would be ideal for the kids to have their friends write a message to them.

    Could this have been done using a jelly roll? But it seems like a lot of wasted fabric if you had to cut the jelly roll into those triangles.

    Wonky blocks with a plain center square. I did this technique in a class, using the book "Twist 'N Turn: A Fun Way to Frame Quilt Blocks" , by Sharyn Squier Craig. It's OOP, but you can get a used copy on Amazon:

    Thanks so much!!!!!!
    I'm going to make these for my children's friends to write messages on when we move. I got 1 1/2 years to finish 3 of them.
    Thanks,

    One can draft this to almost any size one would like -

    If one doesn't have a quilt drafting program, one can use graph paper -


    After I get a pattern the way I like it, I cut the paper apart so I can glue the pieces on template plastic -
    leave about 3/5 inch spaces between the pieces (leave more if you are dealing with acute triangles) -
    glue the paper pieces down with rubber cement -
    then cut around the paper pieces leaving 1/4 inch seam allowance around the pattern pieces.
    I use my ruler and rotary cutter to do this.

    For the triangles - check to make sure that you leave enough room for the tails!!

    It looks like a Twist n Turn block from Sharyn Craig's book by the same name.

    I know I've got a similar pattern in one of my bazillion quilting books.

    Not sure of the exact size to cut, but you will basically take a rectangle piece of fabric that is about a 1/2" wider than the widest part of your border that you are going for. If your center block is cut at 5.5", I would probably cut a rectangle about 2.5-3" wide and about 6.5" long. You will cut this diagonally from one corner to the opposite corner. Attach these two pieces to opposite sides of your center block stitching to the bias cut you just made. You will need another rectangle cut the same way for the other two sides. May need to square up your final block to trim away any excess fabric.

    Hopefully this makes sense. Been a long day and I'm dog-tired.

    Thanks for starting this thread. I really like it and will surprise (hopefully) my children the month before we move with them.

    Not only did I order the book but I also ordered a Fat Quarter Book.
