Patience corner, pressing plan
Patience corner is one of my favorite blocks. There is a visual disruption going on that makes things a bit juggled. When set together a lattice forms over the quilt top.
It is a block that makes a great setting for small quilt blocks. I used it in a Temecula sew-a-long last year, using it to set 4 inch sampler blocks.
It is also a block that can have different proportions between the elements and several ways to lay out. It would work well on point too.

My design from a traditional pattern. Use at your pleasure.
