Test Block

While I was in California last month I was not really sleeping well. Partly because my hubs is gone, but mostly because Anne wasn’t sleeping well (she misses her daddy). So I had a lot of time on my hands at night to play in Electric Quilt 7.  Here is one of the blocks I came up with.

Originally there was no border on it, but I am using this design for one of the hives I’m in for the 3×6 Bee on Flickr and the blocks need to measure 12×12. I don’t have printer paper large enough to print the templates for a 12×12 block, so instead I made them 10×10 and put a border on them.

What do you all think? These are my colors and will go in the quilt I am making.  I have actually designed a couple of quilts with this block, maybe some day I will find the time to make one of them!

    Love it, and the border makes it even better. It takes a while to absorb all the design possibilities. Are those quarter blocks paper pieced?

    Well, since purple’s one of my faves, and I love paper piecing, you know this block would surely get my attention! Love it! I can’t wait to see what a bunch of ’em together looks like! I imagine there’d be lots of secondary patterns emerging. Very nicely done!
