This is the block that I made for Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks; it's called "Candlestick." It's quick and easy to make, and I like it's lacy, airy style. Quilt blocks that have a stronog diagonal are particularly nice because there are so many ways to arrange them in the quilt top. Some of the many options are: barn-raising, on point, X's, and zig-zags. Then you could add sashing, or not.
If you make a quilt using this block, I'd love to see a photo. We'll post them here on the Selvage Blog. I can see some selvages looking good in this block too!
