It's Not The Block

It's What You Do With It

C&T Publishing has a new book out called Modern Blocks. It's Subtitled 99 Quilt Blocks from Your Favorite Designers. I am one of those designers. I contributed 2 blocks to the book.

I thought you might like to see one of them.

The inspiration for my block Eccentric Wonky Star was the traditional block Eccentric Star.

I may be biased, but I don't think either of them is all that exciting. At least, not all by itself.

But  repeated, rotated and reflected Eccentric Wonky Star can do some wonderful things.

Eccentric Wonky Star is not the sort of block you would use in a sampler quilt. It isn't a stand alone block.

But if you take some time to play with it you'll find it is a useful block,
