Isn’t this fun! I too enjoy visiting the other blogs. So many talent people with wonderful block designs.
My block is called Crossroads of Life. Think of the many crossroads, roadblocks and detours to take. The nice element of this block is any choice of color or placement will make a terrific quilt. My philosophy on quilt blocks is that they should be versatile. One should be able to use one pattern and make it in any themed fabric and with a twist of the block have new quilt look.
I have several images of quilt layouts for you to view. I used the same color placement in each of the images so you might see the differences better in the layout. Do notice the pastel quilt, its the same layout as the third but the eye focus changes to the seconary design - a star.
Possible color changes might include alternating corner ends to create an interesting look where four blocks meet, almost a checker board effect.
Try setting the blocks on point. The set in sides could have a ‘snow ball’ tip to integrate with the blocks, giving it an industrial look. I think the ‘X’ is fascinating. A young man would love that ‘X’ marks the spot design.
This block will be beautiful using batiks, traditional, or depression era theme fabrics. Depth of color is the key to this quilt block.
