BOW #15 Fox and Geese
It has a Native American feel to the design, especially if you do it in two colors (red and beige) and arrange it in concentric squares (actually, I don't think squares can be concentric, but you know what I mean)--it reminds me of a Navajo weaving.
It would also be beautiful in scraps with different arrangement of the blocks. I always think about fall colors, even when it isn't fall (doesn't it look like leaves that are falling on top of each other) but this would be a charming spring quilt in pastel colors.
It's easy to make, using squares and those ubiquitous Half Square Triangles. For a 12" finished block you'll need:
(2) 6-1/2" half square triangles, light/dark
(4) 3-1/2" half square triangles, light/dark
(4) 3-1/2" light squares
