Ontario Series #1


I wanted to design some blocks that featured some triangles that weren't half-square triangles. I decide they would be my Ontario series and started with this block - Toronto.

Usually my designs are pieced, but I expect this series, like this block, will be paper pieced.

Offset Block #14



I was looking for an interesting block to play with offset when I came across Spool. My first thought was, this is not an interesting block and no matter how I color it or offset it, it will never be interesting. I decided to give it a try more out of a sense of fairness and duty than from any expectation that anything would come from it.

Here's what I found.

Offset Block #13

Snail's Trail

Snail's Trail is a very unique block. It will be interesting to see what happens when it is offset.

Kansas Dugout

Kansas Dugout is a nice simple block. I'm going to play with it.

Paired Blocks #25

Clay's Choice &

Drunkard's Path

I thought it would be interesting to combine an 8" Clay's Choice block with 4" Drunkard's Path blocks.
