For something I did because I couldn't figure out how to pull of my original idea, I'm really happy with the way that Christopher turned out. I didn't make this top to go with a particular backing fabric, but there was a novelty print in my stash that worked perfectly.
Want to make your own? The block finishes at 30" square and I added 2" borders to each side of mine to bring the finished quilt up to 34".
By my math, you'll need less than 3/4 yard each of white and green. That may vary depending on how you cut your triangles.
6 - 6 1/2" green squares
4 - 2 1/2 x 6 1/2" green strips
20 - 2 1/2" green squares
8 -- 2 1/2 x 6 1/2" white strips
16 - 2 1/2" white squares
You'll need to cut pieces for twelve 6" finished half square triangle units using your favorite method. I cut half square triangles from 6 1/2" strips of fabric using my Easy Angle ruler. Or you could cut six 6 7/8" squares each from white and green and cut them in half diagonally.
Make four nine-patch blocks, four rail fence blocks, and twelve half square triangle units.
Assemble as shown.
Add 2 1/2" white border strips to all four sides, quilt and bind.
