Interesting block which I have seen a few times, but don’t recall ever seeing a name attached to it other than Drundard’s Path variation. I nearly called it Seahorse, but then I actually drew a Patchwork Jigsaw Seahorse, which I’m hoping will surface amongst the many folders of graph paper I have scribbled on. (Think I made a doll quilt using the Seahorse ….. wonder if I have a photo of that!)
Anyway, when I was twisting and turning the four quarters of this block I came across the double-headed thingy which I have used in the border which vaguely reminds me of a chess piece, and now I just see chess pieces every time I see the block. Because it looks nothing like a real chess piece it is just as well I don’t play chess!
In this design nine blocks are made with a strong contrast between the shapes and the background, the rest have very little contrast. It makes for a much lighter design
