The Goose Tracks quilt block focuses on the half square triangle patch as the main "ingredient" and then throws in a few squares in different sizes for good measure. This is a good starter block for the beginner quilter.
Simple shapes can make for very intriguing quilts and there is no limit to the ways you can use this quilt block in your final production. This nine patch quilt block also makes a great scrappy block allowing you to use up your scraps. The only criteria is to make sure that each half square triangle unit has a definite "dark" and "light" fabric for effective contrast.
The sample quilts illustrated show you layouts using the additional sashing between the blocks for greater emphasis.
