So, in the last episode, I made 64 Shaded 4-Patch Blocks – 32 blocks with a dark square and a medium triangle, and 32 blocks with a medium square and a dark triangle. I love the Shaded 4-Patch block because it is *so* versatile. For example, how many designs can I make with these 64 blocks? Yesterday I played with blocks all day, and came up with a dozen different designs.
That’s 1 block, 2 color layouts, 3 colors, and you get at least 12 different designs. Imagine the variety of designs that can be created with 4, 5, or 6 colors?
So, now I need your help. I want to include two designs in my new pattern to showcase its versatility, and I can’t decide which two. Argh! What are your two favorites? Leave your comments below and tell me which you like. Maybe I’ll even give out a few prizes later. (Such a tease.)
Choosing was tough! My favorite is #2. I like the funky modern feel it has. My second choice is #7. A lot can be done with this with different shades of similar colors.
I can envision design #7 with a gradation of color, like using the colors of the rainbow from red in the lower left corner to violet in the upper right corner, one color fading into the next…but still keeping the white for contrast
Absolutely! That would be cool!
1, 2, or 3.
I like 3 and 5, both stand out to me as different and with great quilting space.
I am liking 3 & 6
And live Nancys vision for #7
So many choices with this unit.
