Then the blocks are arranged with a solid square in the middle. You keep turning the blocks a quarter of a turn, until you find the combination that you like, and then sew them all together. Here are a couple of ways that I arranged the blocks. Still a little busy, so I will keep turning. I am leaning towards the second one- but not completely sold yet. Will post the final later this week.

See what everyone else is working on and get some great ideas at Patchwork Times.
So far I think I prefer the second block layout. Everywhere I look these days quilters are doing creative stuff with HSTs.ReplyDelete
I'm working with some scrappy HSTs of my own - 1,080 of them - just two seams left per block.
Oh fun that is. I don't think I'd be able to stop turning them!! Can't wait to see what you finally come up with.ReplyDelete
This looks fun. I love turning blocks and catching different designs. It's like a kaleidoscopic.ReplyDelete
Very different looks between the two. I'm not sure which I like better. Suppose turning some more you'll stumble on it! SandiReplyDelete
The second one gets my vote!ReplyDelete
Very cool idea! I think I'd have a hard time making a final decision on this one. So many great options! Hope you've made lots of progress this week. :o)ReplyDelete
