These are the blocks we made; to see the
Binary by Angela Pingel. Allison writes, "After doing several intricate blocks - this was a nice easy one that completed quickly! Be careful though it easily gets out of shape while pressing the strips open."
Stonehenge by Amy Ellis. Jenny writes, "This is another simple yet striking block. It would make a fantastic two-color quilt, and Amy suggests strip piecing if you were going to make a bunch of identical blocks. It went together in a snap, and (I think) would offer an interesting secondary design."
Just Jack by Lynne Goldsworthy. Allison writes, "I drafted this one on freezer paper because I am loving this way of freezer paper! I love how it came out - those little white strips really make a difference to this design"
Mondrian by Jamie Mailanen. Brye writes, "I love this block - love it - love it! It is great to put scraps together. But I had trouble getting it straight. It seems that my black strips were pulling in. I think if I had a whole quilt of this block it would straighten out."
Turnaround by Monique Dillard. Jenny writes, "This is one of the more intricate blocks, but so fabulous! I love the motion of it, and think it would be an awesome one made into a whole quilt or used as an alternate block to create a cool secondary pattern. My one bit of advice is to trim away the excess fabric from your flying geese units to reduce the bulk. Also, lay it out on your sewing table with the picture. If you look at mine and the original, you will see that I turned my center unit the wrong way. I don't think it particularly matters, but it is easy to do. "
