Cornerstones + 27, 28, 29 and 30

Cornerstones + 27

Not many extras in the first design … just four all dark blocks in the corners

Cornerstones + 28

The second has the same blocks in the corners, but there are also some almost all dark blocks with four small light squares near the centres.

Cornerstones + 29

Like the diagonal lines … and I rather like the one corner which is a bit different!

Cornerstones + 30

I also rather like the way the almost all dark blocks add quite a sparkle to the design.


A challenge for you … it will be quicker but no less a challenge for those who have Electric Quilt than for those who use pencil and paper.

How many ways can you arrange the light and dark fabrics within a Chimneys and Cornerstones block?

I have another project file which I haven’t shared a lot of which has way too many quilt designs … and quite a few blocks. I will share some of the designs and show you how many shading variations I am using … next week,

    Interesting selection. They give the impression they are on point, clever! I think I like the second one the most.


    • Marie,

      Yes, they do … though i hadn’t really noticed that before! Will have to look out for Chimneys and Cornerstones quilts to see if they all look that way, or is it something to do with my colour choices.

    Those little white blocks add the “sparkle” and I agree they do make the block look like it is on point. I like the second one the best too! And if you hadn’t said anything I bet a lot of us would have missed the different corner in the third one LOL. We are just too honest for our own good sometime.


    • Cindy,

      No point not being honest about something I am about to post for the whole wide world to see … though perhaps I should not point it out but see if others are taking notice! Some slip through without me noticing, and some of them get picked up, but not all of them!

      I also learned a lesson while teaching a sampler course for the first time. for several weeks every thing I did was perfect in my demonstrations. Then one night the machine I was working on played up, and I stitched something the wrong way round or some such thing, and I felt the whole class relax, and they told me that up until then they were intimidated by their perfect teacher. I learned a lot, and included hints on fixing problems from then on!
