Swallow Quilt Block

This block was named the Swallow Quilt Block for its resemblance to a swallow, a graceful bird often seen swooping in the sky feasting on mosquitos and other flying insects. It's easy to see the "wings" of the swallow in the design, even if they are more triangular rather than the smooth curves seen in the silhouette of a flying swallow.

This block is classified as a 4 patch. Below are a few layouts to show you how the block might be used in a small quilt design.
