Playing with Blocks
What if I use the outline pattern but lose some of the symmetry by coloring the block like this.
This is definitely not a traditional Oh Susannah block.
I can fill the empty spaces with a simple pattern.
When I color the spaces using colors that match my block, I get this quilt motif.
I can then repeat the motif as part of a quilt.
There is lots of room here to do some interesting quilting.
