Thank you Lynda, these graphics are great! they really help clarify this block.
Would you sew the 9 patch square like you would a granny square block?

You're very welcome! You could do it as a granny square, with strip piecing or really whatever is easiest and most fun for you.

I took it a step further and redid it on point. There are so many possibilities for the lightest blue square block. You can leave it a single color for quilting, you could do it as scrappy squares all in a light tone, or you could pop in a square in a square. What fun!

I actually see it as a "Warm wishes" pattern. The nine patch is attached to a 3 piece rail (where the center stripe is made up of 2 squares and an hourglass block, and the outside stripes match the full squares of the in-between rows). Of course, since it is on point, some of the squares would have to be halved to make the side triangles. Good luck. Ann

Here it is when I take it a step further still - the first one I just added borders and the second one I added the square in a square to some blocks with a little extra something-something. You could put those extra blocks in any arrangement - maybe just in the blocks on the edge of quilt or maybe just one block in from the edge.

This is how I typically use EQ to design. It kind of scares me sometimes what's going on in my little pea brain!

The block looks like the X and Square quilt block from Quilter's Cache. Hers is paper pieced, but can certainly be done a number of ways.

Jan's diagram and explanation makes sense....less work, straight blocks, then on final construction put it on point to get the complicated look!
