Description:
This block is shown with three fabrics in one color scheme, but is great with more colors and fabrics. The interior of the block could be a block on its own. Sections of the block could be parts of a border design. This is also great for block exchanges. See Quiltin' & Rockin' With Aunt Pitty Pat Vol. #3 for more information on block exchanges.
