Battleground Quilt Block

Skill Level: Confident Beginner

The Battleground Quilt Block is basically just the half square triangle on steriods! It's a great way to use up leftover half square triangles that are produced when you use the quick corner method to make flying geese, square in a square units or snowballs.

Obviously, it produces a great looking scrappy quilt.
