These are part of the blocks that I started at the Mini Retreat in August. The other blocks are exactly the opposite -- light where the dark is and dark where the light is. Those blocks are partially finished. I have not decided what will go in the setting triangles yet. Any suggestions? Maybe I'll wait to decide until I see the darker blocks on the design wall, too.
Here is a little closer look.
This is a really simple block and, though unusual for me, no triangles in it! My quilts almost always have half square triangles in them! Since the last quilt top was a log cabin, this is two in a row!
I love the chain that the darker squares form from block to block and the light ones in the dark blocks will add a lot to the complexity of the quilt.
I used a similar chain block in my quilt Redwood Forest that I showed you here. The chains in that case almost seem part of the tree block as the background fabric disappears and only the chain stands out. This is a wonderful block to use as an alternate block in a quilt. Hope you will try it in one of your quilts someday.
Our granddaughter is being married this coming Sunday so this will be a very busy week for us. Tomorrow and the next day I work and in the meantime, I have her dress here as it needs a small alteration made to it.
Hope you are having a fabulous, creative day!
