Thank you! I like the ribbon effect of this block.

For those squares on point I am trying to do a whole square in the center. I am trying 1.5″ red square matched with 2 – 1.5″ white squares cut on diagonal and sewing to each edge of the red square and trimming down to 1.5″ square. I am not finished the block yet but I think it will fit.
