I'm posting a tutorial tomorrow for my method of making the shaded triangle block.
If you follow this blog, you know I'm giving away a free member ship in Stitchory Dickory Dock's "Sugar Block Club."
For fun, I've asked people who comment to name their favorite quilt block. The Log Cabin block is in the lead, but several people have named blocks I didn't recognize!

Craftsy has a paper-pieced pattern for this block available for download for only $3.
Another block I'd never heard of is "Blackford's Beauty." I love this one -- precision piecing at its best!
I found free instructions for this block at Quilt Lover's Guide.
Two I recognize, but that are not common are New York Beauty and Dresden Hearts. I made My Little Sailor's graduation quilt of Judy Niemeyer's paper-pieced New York Beauty blocks:
Dresden Hearts is a sweet block for a baby quilt:
