Rectangular Block


I'm playing with rectangular blocks to see what I can come up with.

This is a 6" x 8" block. The inspiration for it was a Shoo Fly block.

This is what I came up with:

I hope something here will inspire you to try rectangular blocks of your own.


  1. Wayne,

    I loved the first quilt ... and love that it is a twist of Shoo Fly, but most impressed with the Chinese Lantern which appeared out of the puzzle!

    Hope your Christmas was merry and the new year will be bright.

    I'm delighted to learn they are Chinese Laterns. I just thought they were a funny shape that I liked. I like them even more now.

    A happy winter solstice to you and yours too.

  3. I love the green/brown version and those Chinese lanterns! What fun to see what surprises form from your blocks!

    Happy New Year!

    I took a look at your block. I really like how you played with the Christmas Tree block.
