    Another Large Block

    I named it "Inward Arrows". I actually do not know the real name of the pattern. It came out pretty well, although there is a little pucker in the upper left of the center square. I'm hoping that the quilting will disguise it.

    23 x 23 inches.

    Beautiful block and colors. A bunch even in a variety of colors would make a beautiful quilt.

    Is that pucker just that you caught the border fabric in sewing it? looks to me like a i thread snip and it will be gone then just a quick snip to just one stitch. I just did that in a sewing project. Just snipped on thread and all was well.

    No, it is in the center square. I hesitate to cut. I am sure I would do it wrong and the wreck the thing.

    The normal size of this block is probably 12 inches. I saw a picture online and just drew it up in my EQ5. If you want to PM me your email address I can send it to you.
