This is an intermediate skill level block from Eleanor Burns’ new Quilt-in-a-Day book, Victory  Quilts – 1940s Sampler Quilts.  See other blocks I’ve completed in my Quilt Blocks category.

This block calls for a Mini Geese Ruler and although I don’t usually buy specialty rulers, this is a good one to have, particularly for beginners.  The ruler is available through the Quilt-in-a-Day web site.

The block was easy to construct with Eleanor’s very good instructions for a 6″ or 12″ finished block.
