What about MFT? My Favorite Things is the name of the quilt, right?
I like your block. I was thinking today, I need to square mine up and work on the patch work.

I picked that as Anni also has fabric and another quilt with the same names so to save confusion I used the book name..........you can call it what you want........lol.......nice block..........
