Just make a big batch of half square triangles and together with a bunch of squares you get these great looking pieces of patchwork.
You can use triangles and squares alone to make any number of quilts.
One of my quilt patterns are almost exclusively made with squares and triangles or half square triangles.
French Garden is an easy quilt pattern suitable for confident beginners.

My book Turnabout Patchwork
“Turnabout Patchwork. Simple quilts with a twist” is all about playing with blocks – making a block, slicing it up, and turning or repositioning the pieces to make a completely different block (sometimes two smaller blocks) to yield endless quilt tops.
