Winnipeg, MB  Canada

I started with a twelve inch square which I divided into a 6 x 6 grid.  Then I removed lines going from left to right leaving a 2 x 2, 2 x 4 & 2 x 6 pieces.  Then I reversed directions from the bottom right.  I worked into the centre from the sides, to stagger the blocks.
Once the block was created into a quilt layout, I place the diagonal striped block into the 1 x 3 pieces, the zig zag block into the 1 x 2  pieces, and the square was left plain.
