|Possible block setting Number 412 - alternate square and on point layout|
A friend of mine and I have been making Amy Gibson's Sugar Club blocks - 2013 I think - which has been a bit of a slow drawn out process, but is slowly coming together. I have had various ideas about how I would set my finished blocks (once they are finished of course). Through a completely unrelated search through quilting books I was reminded that I really liked this particular setting:
|Of course, I would do a 3x3 layout using nine blocks|
which was in this book:
|Wow, this book just has millions of blocks and settings to try out - not all to my taste, but certainly something to get your project started|
It just all started me thinking about whether I could make this setting work with the various sampler blocks - knowing that I didn't have the regularity of the star block centre that the book project had. I thought about it for quite a while - and I'm sure made it a whole lot more difficult than it really was. In the end I figured it made as much sense to just try the setting with one of the blocks... this was how far I got before I ran out of background fabric...
but I also realised that it will work! So happy faces all round.
