Select four block designs.
Place one in the centre, one of another on each side of the centre, eight of another one to form a square on point around ,,, and add 12 of the fourth design to fill the corners.
Simple formula … great results.
If you look through the Virtual Quilter archives you will find lots of quilt designs which fit that formula, and they all work. Pieced and applique blocks can be mixed, or all pieced, all applique … doesn’t matter. And whatever block designs you choose they will probably be interchangeable. If you have Electric Quilt, or any other quilt program, have a play … fun, and you just might design the next quilt you just have to make.
