Don't Know Where You're Going?
Then You'll End Up Someplace Else.
That Could Be Fun!
The nice thing about looking for new block designs is that you never know what you'll find.
Too many quilters think of quilt design as problem solving. Who needs more problems? Think of it as a treasure hunt and it becomes an adventure. New adventures are fun.
Come with me now on my latest adventure. It starts with a random design on a 3x3 grid.
The result is a new block that is 9" x 9".
This wasn't planned and it wasn't expected; it just happened. It doesn't look anything like any block I've ever seen before. Ask me if I'm pleased!
I think this is most unusual and very interesting.
Only 2 of the many possible 9" blocks where explored. And these 2 weren't explored fully. There is still a lot of treasure out there.
The simple fact is you'll never find treasure, if you never go looking for it. But if you go looking for it, you'll be surprised to discover that it's everywhere.
You need to ask yourself, "Would I like to find treasure of my very own? Am I ready for an adventure?"
