Playing with Blocks

King's Crown

King's Crown blocks are based on this outline pattern.

What if I use the outline pattern, but lose some of the symmetry by varying the colors on the sides of the block?

To start, I'll try this variation.


What if I take 4 of the variation, rotate them and then join them to make a new block?

I get a red pinwheel in the center.

 What if I take 4 of this new block and join them together?
I get blue and magenta pinwheels to go with the red ones.

I like this; it is an interesting quilt motif.
