Red and White 2 Block Quilts 49, 50, 51 and 52

Red and White 2 Block Quilts 49


I know … I shared some of this series recently, but I want to rush the basics through before I get too carried away mixing the blocks up in different ways.




Red and White 2 Block Quilts 50

I still hear far too many people say that there are a limited number of designs and they have all been done … I am trying to show that there are way more designs out there which have never been done.

Red and White 2 Block Quilts 51

I have spent quite some time playing with some very basic 9 patch blocks and have found many which I have never seen anywhere along with the familiar ones.

I am only looking for symmetrical blocks too … with an occasional look at blocks which are only symmetrical on the diagonal to create diagonal lines in straight settings. There are many more non symmetrical blocks out there too, but I will leave them for others to discover.

I am going to have a red and white weekend sharing some of the other red and white series … back to more colourful quilts next week!

  1. So many of us put limits on ourselves. It is nice to see you demonstrate that we can go beyond those self-imposed limits and discover new ways of playing with our blocks!


    • Laura,

      I have found that playing in EQ eats up a lot of time … but it allows me to keep asking the big question … what if I …. move that, swap that block for another, change fabrics. I don’t have to make a quilt to know the design is OK, and I can do it over and over. Every so often I find a design which I think is almost perfect, then make a few changes and find something different which is also nearly perfect!

      The thing I would like to see is that people who have EQ on a computer is for them to spend time playing … learning to use the tool and learning about design. Kids learn through play … so can grown ups!

    Red and white is striking, they would be nice in blue and white, or depending on what colour you liked wouldn’t they? I don’t tire of any creation you come up with, its like a little surprise every day!
