This block is a variation on one found in EQ called 'Zig Zag border, Block was redrafted to change all angles to 45 degrees (making it much more rotary cutting and piecing friendly).
Rotary cutting instructions can be found here.
I think this block reminds me of the path those slolam skiers must travel going around the poles down the mountain. When I was researching this, I learned that they have options for snowboarding and skiing.
Have you pieced any of the Olympic blocks? If so, I would love to see pictures.
