Partial Block #2

What if

Clay's Choice

Wasn't All There?





What if I removed a quarter of a Clay's Choice block? What could I do with what was left?
















Every block has the potential to be a different block.

Partial Block #1

What If
Bear's Paw
Wasn't All There?


What if some Bear's Paw blocks only had three paws, or two, instead of four?
I could combine Bear's Paw blocks and partial Bear's Paw blocks.

Here's what happened when I tried this idea.

Sashing

Card Trick










Sashing can change not only a quilt but a block.I've played with sashing occasionally and been amazed by the difference it can make.

Amish Star #8

Yesterday I played with an Amish Star by coloring it various ways and discovered this new block.

Today I want to play with the new block.

What Is It? #1



























I'm going to explore some of the possibilities of an Amish Star block. But instead of playing with one block at a time I'm going to play with nine.

Instead of creating a block and then finding out what kind of quilt it will make I'm going to try creating a quilt and then discover what block was used to make it.

Paired Blocks #30








 Nine Patch
?




I thought I'd try combining two very simple blocks and see what happens.

Snail's Trail
Log Cabin



I had fun playing with these two blocks in my last post; so I thought I'd play some more.
