This a great and versatile quick-make - I have taught it recently to complete beginners as a day class and they all finished the top, several of them got as far as doing the quilting. It is that quick to make. Try turning the blocks around or the units within the blocks for a different look. Different colours or different colour placements will look good too.
I've been doing patchwork for more years than I care to think about. I'm a regular contributor to British quilting magazines and teach at my local quilt shop.
