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.
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.
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!
