Happy Monday! It’s August and the weather is cooler here in North Carolina. This week’s block is another block made in quarters. You may have noticed that some blocks are made in a 9-patch configuration which lends itself to “rows” and other blocks are made in a 4-patch configuration. You may have wondered how these blocks are designed. Here’s my starting point for this 4-patch configuration. I took a quarter of a block with a line drawing, turned the line drawing in each quadrant and then colored and re-colored it until it was pleasing. Here’s the base quadrant.
And here’s the set of blocks made from the starting quadrant. Click on the pictures below or click on the menu at the top of this page to find the patterns.
