Try a square in a square with a hour glass as the alternate block. This gives the illusion of square in a suare in a square set on point.

I think if you don't want a square set on point that you could make the center square the size of your choosing then add strips going around it in the width you want and as many as you want. Example start with a 5" square and add 2 1/2" strips around until you've reached the size you want (of course changing the fabric with each square).

Not on point would be a square with two rows of sashing the same width sewn to the center square. Is that what you mean?

Hahaha,
Boy, did I get that wrong.
I originally read it as not wanting the center square to be on point.
Too funny.

Wouldn't your version be a variation of a log cabin block - regardless of the colors chosen for the borders?

Yikes - all that bias on the outside edges.

I give up.
Which block is Susan (the OP) talking about?
