    Put a plaid/print stripe between two strips of solid then cut the squares on a bit of a angle. Easy. Good use of scraps.

    My pleasure! It can be made any size. The key measurement is the width of the center strip. Take your finished block size, divide in half and add 1/4". (You'd normally add 1/2" but since this is sewn at an angle you don't want the full 1/2".) So if you want an 8" finished block, the center strip would be 4 1/4" wide.

    I do think you'll waste a lot of fabric with this method so when I make one (it's now on my very long list!) I'm going to make the top and bottom triangles from a rectangle. This will be much easier if I figure out how to trim the corners of the triangles so they line up properly with the central strip. I'll be working on that and will post a "trimmer" when I get it figured out.

    I've also been experimenting with colors/values and you can create some really neat effects by varying the values of the darks. Here's an example:
