You know, even when you don't really love the block, if you play around with it you can find some good qualities! I like the Christmas wreath look. Great idea.
When I saw the layout I immediately thought "Christmas wreath," then I saw you did, too! Kind of fun, even for something that's not your favorite. Of course, there are so many wonderful quilts out there, you might as well just make the ones you love.
Don't ya just love EQ6. I get so much pleasure out of designing my own quilts and trying different layouts. I have not gotten far enough to know how to upload scans of my fabric but they have such a good variety, it doesn't really matter.I like your arrowhead block layout and would make a pretty quilt, especially with some stitchery in the center blocks.
I just KNEW it would be cute put together with more blocks. Thanks for the photo, and your creativity!
I like the Christmas wreath look. I was looking at it during a hot flash and it made me smile.GigglesVicki
That's exactly what I thought of when I saw it, before reading, looks like wreathes with berries.
I think I am going to have to have a little fun with this block . . . I hear fabric calling my name *s*
I like this! I have EQ6, now I just need to learn how to use it. Thought I would like to scan in fabrics of my own. Do you do that?
If you broke the design up differently and pieced it in rows instead of blocks, it would eliminate a lot of seams and would probably be fairly fast to put together. It would consist of green and red four patch blocks, green and white rectangles, and white squares (with half blocks around the edges, of course). I often do this with quilt block patterns, and look at the block intersections to see if fabricating the block or whole top a different way would make it simpler. Recently I did that on the Block Central BOM. I'm making it twice in two scales and colorways. The first went together by their directions, but by combining patches the construction of the smaller block was simpler and easier.
