This is the block I used for designing my first quilt back in 1998, so it's pretty special to me!
And it's a fun one to make!
You can see....I couldn't just stop at one!
So here goes....

D - (4) 2 1/2" X 1 1/2" Rectangles...for outside middle squares.
E - (1) 2 1/2" Square...for center square.
A and B Cuts
|Put A and B squares right side together, draw a line diagonally down the middle.|
Chain piece through machine, stitching on line.
Trim up to 1/4" past seam.
Take D and C Rectangles, place wrong sides together and stitch down the length, 1/4".
Now assemble block as below:
Sew the 3 left side squares together as shown below, doing the same for the middle squares and right side squares.
Then sew each of these 3 units together.
