Card Trick

Sashing can change not only a quilt but a block.I've played with sashing occasionally and been amazed by the difference it can make.

Amish Star #8

Yesterday I played with an Amish Star by coloring it various ways and discovered this new block.

Today I want to play with the new block.

What Is It? #1

I'm going to explore some of the possibilities of an Amish Star block. But instead of playing with one block at a time I'm going to play with nine.

Instead of creating a block and then finding out what kind of quilt it will make I'm going to try creating a quilt and then discover what block was used to make it.

Paired Blocks # 28

Snail's Trail

Log Cabin

Snail's Trail and Log Cabin are two blocks that are made in a similar way. You start at the center and work your way out.
I wondered, what if these two blocks were paired up? So I set out to find out.
