Clay’s Choice Quilt Block

The Clay’s Choice Quilt Block is another fascinating combination of simple squares and Half-Square Triangles. This ingenious placement of shapes and colors creates an elongated pinwheel with an inner pinwheel. It’s a great design element to add “movement” to a quilt.

Grouping Example

When grouped together in a quilt setting, the Clay’s Choice Quilt Block creates some interesting secondary patterns of squares and Jewels.
