    Let's talk about this block. Do you like this block? Do you know its name or history? Have you made this block before? Is this an easy block to make? Inquiring minds would like to know. 8o)

    I have not made THAT block, but I'd sure like to!

    I'd say for the parallelogram part, if you don't wanna do that, make it a 4-patch with HST. A couple extra seams, but I can do a HST like nobody's business! :D

    I found that block in my 256 Fat Quarter Quilt Blocks book by House of White Birches. They list it as 'Swing in the Center"

    I have made a block very similar.

    In the photo, it is the second block from the left in the bottom row. It was not as hard as I thought it would be. The paralellograms were made by sewing squares across the corners of rectangles, then trimming 1/4 inch past the seam.

    Hey, Ms! Coyote here.....

    Have seen this block in Quilter Cache, but don't have any idea what Marcia calls hers. It was something like a wedding ring variation. I would also do that odd section into 2 flying geese.... I have a heck of a time making all my areas the same with a square sewn on a rectangle. I always put my stitching in a different place....

    It's block #1767 in Barbara Brackman's BlockBase, called Swing in the Center, first documented by Clara Stone.

    I would do it with flying geese patches, too.

    I would love to see this done with the flying geese as suggested here. If anyone has made it this way, would you post it here? Thanks. I like this block too and would love to see the variances.

    It can be in in hst's also! HST's are easier for me.

    HST's give me hives. :mrgreen: I don't know what my problem is, but I can't do a block full of HST's to save my life.

    I signed up for a BOM that's nothing but HST's. I use exactly the same Triangulations printouts for the large and the small, I use exactly the same very scant 1/4" seam allowance and still, they come out different sizes, with floating points or points chopped off... how goofy is that?

    I LOVE Eleanor Burns' flying geese rulers. I can't seem to mess those up. :D
