Another favorite of mine is the Log Cabin block.  Here I took the Classic Pieced>Log Cabin (2) added lines to create diamond shapes within some of the ‘logs’ and then using Serendipity >Kaleidoscope Block created the altered block.
This block was  placed into the same  4 x 4 Horizontal layout and a border from the AutoBorders tool was then added.
