The Balkan Puzzle quilt block is a four patch block and is comprised solely of half square triangles. It is simple to construct and is a terrific block to use to make a dent in your fabric stash, as it looks great as a "scrappy" block. Just make sure to have light, medium and dark fabrics to showcase the different elements.
