Rectangular Block


Why do blocks have to be square? Why can't they be rectangular? I decided to design a rectangular block and see what happens.

I started with a three by four grid and assumed the squares were 2"x2".

I arbitrarily drew this piecing and started to play with how the pieces were colored and then played with block settings.

Here are some of the results.

I think the idea of rectangular blocks is worth exploring some more.


Is anybody besides me having trouble using Blogger? Nothing does what it's supposed to. I have to trick it to make it do what I want. This  has been going on for a long time, ever since Google took over. It's vey discouraging.


  1. I haven't had much trouble with Blogger, though I do know it there was a bit of a learning curve when G took over. (Why did they have to change so much and all at the same time, I wonder?)

    What problems are frustrating you the most? I'll help if I can...

  2. Nice idea! I like especially the third one!

    I havn't problems with blogger, but I know that someone has problems with comments on my blog. Don't know why...

  3. Hi again,

    maybe you can find some help in this articel?

  4. Of course blocks don't have to square ... I can tell by your results!
    Lots of people seem to be having problems with Blogger ... I can't help except to say I have had very few problems with Wordpress.

    Have a merry Christmas, and wishing you a great new year ... look forward to seeing what you design in the next twelve months.
