You Don't Need A Fancy Block

To Make A Fancy Quilt

This is not a fancy block. In fact it's so not fancy that I don't know what to call it. But that doesn't mean it can't be a useful and interesting block.
You may have seen it used to make another block, Kansas Dugout. I'm going to play with it and see what else besides Kansas Dugout I can find.

A lot more can be done with this simple block. I've only just begun to explore its possibilities. Perhaps you would like to see what you can do with it?


  1. Wow!! You did amazing arrangements with that block!! Thank you for the inspiration!

  2. That is the same block I used for my Hugs and kisses quilt. You can view it by copy and paste below. I love how one block can be so simple and yet so fancy and so bold!
