So, let's mix it up, shall we?
Here are the nine patches of my card trick block switched around to make a star. The corner pieces would make diamonds when more blocks are added to it.
Here those same squares are again. I don't know what to call this block but it's very pretty.
This next block is one that I completed back in January for the BOM at my LQS. I had really messed it up by being over zealous in squaring up each block.
It was suppose to be 12 inches but ended up 10 by the time I was through with it. So, I decided to remake it but before I sewed the squares together, I played around with the layout and this is what I came up with.
A really cool X!Then changed around again and you get this:
Notice how if I had turned the bottom row of blocks upside down, it would have made a different X shape. That would make a cool quilt - diamonds and X's.
And look, now it's a heart!
I love quilting - it's so versatile and unpredictable yet precise and organized.
These are my 5 blocks together. January through May. I haven't done June's block yet. I still have a week and a half until the next meeting :)
