Geometry Block for Pi Day

14 March is Pi Day.  Pi is the mathematical constant used to find, for example, the diameter of a circle.  Pi is 3.14 and many more decimal places, so month 3 and day 14 is Pi day.  It's also Albert Einstein's birthday.  

Geometry Block

This block is called Geometry and it's found in 120 Patterns for Traditional Patchwork Quilts by Maggie Malone.  It's not listed in Barbara Brackman's BlockBase or EQ7.  The book suggests it is a good block for a scrap quilt.  When making the block divide it along the diagonals and make four big triangular sections.  Mine is finished 8 inches square.
