Here is a paper piecing tutorial 

For rotary cutting I cut (4) 2 1/2" squares for the center and (4) 3/4 x 3 1/2" strips. Cut the squares diagonally and sew the strips in. Trim to 2 1/8th", center your 45 degree line down the center of the strip to help you line it up.

Sew strips between squares, (2) 3/4 x 2 1/8" and 3/4 x 4" . Add borders of 1x4" and 1" corner squares. It will be a little oversize, Trim to 5" and your done!

Worked on this puppy (D-1) about 4 hours one afternoon, got through and it was just plain pathetic.  It went in file 13 (trash).  Went in search of an alternative.  A quilt instructor  once told me there was no wrong in quilting, just different.  Well here is different.  JAS

Thanks Patricia.  We all just have to do the best we can and be happy with it.  If you don't enjoy it, don't do it.  JAS

Jane, I love what you've done with this one. Dear Jane is such a wonderful quilt. This block fits in perfectly! Ah...to have the freedom and encouragement to think outside the box!

Thanks Jeanne!!!  Sometimes you have to color outside the lines.  I love to scroll through all the assignments and see what everyone is doing.  They are all so lovely and all different.  The fabrics are great.  Want it be fun when everyone has their top finished?  To see how different they are  JAS
