Opposites Attract Quilt Block and Giveaway

I am participating in the Opposites Attract Blog Hop hosted by Marian of Seams To Be Sew HERE.

We were to design a quilted item using a block design of only 2 colors. I saw this block in a quilting book I was looking through and decided to make it.

I had just enough time in my month to get one block sewn and decided it would be a small table mat to give as a Christmas gift. It measures 12" square. 

I used the Accuquilt 4" finished Triangle Square die. I did not have a 4" finished Half Square Triangle die, so I had to cut the corner triangles myself (but it is on my wish list). 

For the center 4" Square in a Square I used the EQ7 template print out. I found that the green corner triangles could be cut with the Economy die that came with my Go! Cutter...that helped. 

I did have time as I designed it to work out some block orientations, thinking I would make a larger project with a few blocks.
