I love playing around on the design wall, turning the blocks this way and that way, they look so very different every time I try something new. I just made a whole bunch of square in a square blocks and spent some time playing with them.
The most obvious way to place them is just next to each other:
..and they look just fine, right? Then I turned them on point, just to see what happens:
Hey, I like that. Nice and symmetrical. But maybe a little boring, so I pulled them apart and pretended my green design wall is another fabric:
I like that too. But just to complicate things, I took out some blocks I had already made:
Now that adds some life, but maybe it looses some of the simplicity... See what I mean, there's a lot of possibilities. Make your own pattern, don't just follow others!
Speaking of following others... want to know what all these square in a square blocks are for? A very traditional block: It's going to be a Storm at Sea quilt. Se the block in the middle?
