Default Need Name for a Quilt Block and Suggestions

Hi all,
I have 3 very subtle grey, black and white Civil War prints that I adore!! I want to showcase them with the white I bought to go with them. I was thinking of the block that is two smaller triangles opposite and attached to a larger triangle to make a square. I can't find this name in any of my books and it is hard to google without a name! Does anyone know the name? Also, any suggestions for even better patterns for showing off fabric that are easy?? I am an advanced beginner, maybe!
Thanks,
Nancy

Has anyone done this one?

It is the Chain Block. It looks like it might take a while to make each block. I like fast!!

Nancy, this is just squares and flying geese. Easy.... Beautiful block. Also if you want to showcase a fabric I'd cut the center square in 1 piece instead of 4....

I like that Chain Block....but as noted in a thread yesterday...don't worry so much about fast as the price of fabric makes slowing down and maybe enjoying it more economical
