Default Flip flop block

This block appeared in Whitaker may Jan/feb2010 and was a series throughout the year. I have quilted for many years and applauded a lot, but this block is driving me crazy. I have made every mistake possible and wasted a lot of disable and fabric. If you have done this block and can help me I would appreciate it

Can you post a link or a picture of what you are trying to achieve? When I googled 'flip flop quilt block' I got a few very different pictures.

I think this may be the one. What is your problem with it?

Quiltmaker did a series of flip/flop blocks. I don't remember the snowflake one, but I do remember a daisy that many folks did. I think the one you are looking for help with is shown here? http://oldwww.quiltmaker.com/pattern...html?idx=10587

and here we I was thinking footwear. Though for most of us, they were called Thongs when we were little and wearing them. Now thongs are a totally different type of apparel.

I really like those mirror image/reverse image blocks.

Well, this is what I thought of when I read Flip Flop Block Quilt.
I have this book and the ruler to go with it, but I haven’t tried it yet.
