Here is a fun block which has some lovely design elements. It is from Quilting Gallery and is an easy one to assemble.
With instructions for making a 6″ and a 12″ block, you can incorporate this design in so many ways. The half square triangles on the four corners adds a secondary pattern when sewing the blocks together.
It is also a great block to show off your scrap fabrics. Depending on your placement, you could highlight some of your favorite pieces. The block has a lot of movement in it.
Blocks like this are so versatile. They maintain their traditional look, but then add that little something extra, like the varying colors in each of the corners.
