Sleuthing a Block
There's a block I found on Pinterest that's haunted me for a long time.
At least a year.
It was published in a magazine in 2012,
along with the tutorial.
I've searched for the magazine on Ebay with no luck,
so I finally pulled out some scraps and tried to dissect the block to make my own.
Here's the block as it's found on Pinterest:
I just love the look when the white right angles meet up as they sit next to another block!
I figured this would make a cool quilt using scraps.
I've got plenty of them!
As the block went into beta mode, I came up with this:
It was OK, but not the same dimensions as the Pinterest original,
so back to the cutting board I went.
I made the white strips wider and the colored strips narrower.
My next prototype came out perfect:
I felt like Sheldon Cooper on the Big Bang Theory!
I broke the code!
I'm not exactly sure what I'll do now that I've figured it out.
It will stay in the back on my mind and on my to-do list,
but it will definitely be used soon!
