It’s Great in Many Color Combos and Fabric Styles!

This charming block is sized to stand alone as a mini quilt or to combine with others in larger projects. It’s a fairly simple block to make and one that will finish up quickly.

Choose a favorite color palette and enjoy the beautiful results. Also consider playing with value placements. The look of the block will change significantly as the lights, mediums and darks are moved around within the block.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources.
