Chisel Die Revisited

I was going through some old posts the other day and looking at quilts that are on my Quilt Bucket List and revisited this one. I first wrote about the chisel die a year ago. but there are two quilts here, so it’s worth re-visiting. The difference in these quilts is in the patch placement within the block for the dark and light. Below you will see two blocks which are actually the same, it’s just that the colors are reversed – or another way to look at it is that the chisel is turned with the short side to the inside strip on one block and the short side to the outside on the second block.

I called one a “star” and the other a “flower”, but the flower also looks like a pinwheel doesn’t it?

My blog is about helping other quilters learn to use great tools in their quilting through what I can teach and through finding other bloggers who have good information. In addition, I am a mother and grandmother. Other hobbies include any other stitchery which makes me happy at the moment. I worked in clinical research for most of my career. I am now retired and enjoying every minute.
