I am blaming the lopsided lower left corner on bad photography.  That is my story and I am sticking to it.  LOL.

This block has four of the units shown below.  I was introduced to this unit many years ago by Sally Schneider.  She called it Mary’s Triangles.  She has a wonderful method for making two of these units at a time.

Creative Grids calls this unit cat’s cradle.  With their ruler, CGRHD1, it is easy to accurately make the units in many sizes.
