    It's a traditional block. A couple of years ago I started collecting graph drawings of traditional blocks for an (eventual) sampler, & this is one of my favorites. Didn't actually think I'd be able to do it in a 6" block, but it worked :)

    Great block! It'll make a stunning quilt. And that red-and-black fabric is to die for!

    It will finish at 6". It's part of a pink sampler quilt. (I take horrible pictures; it's actual color is hot pink)
