What If You
Change The Grid...
You get a wonky block.
Notice that I didn't change all the dimensions. Notice also that I didn't make all the dimension different; I repeated some.
I recolored the block to emphasize the flying geese rather than the pinwheel. I wasn't looking for a wonky pinwheel this time.
It is one of many quilt designs possible with this block. Here are a few more:
I like the negative shape at the center of this one.
One reason I like changing grids to make wonky blocks, is the variety of shapes and sizes I get with them.
I also like the fact that I can take a traditional block and give it an entirely new look.
Tomorrow I'm going to make a Contrary Wife wonky.
