    Freestyle Blocks I Designed and Created

    Don't pay much attention to the white on white strips around four of the blocks They will be removed. I put it there temporarily to see what the clocks would look like on NEGATIVE space using white background for a MOD Quilt.

    The other one I did this morning does not have the white on white border.

    Eventually all blocks will be incorporated into a MOD Quilt using white on white as the background canvas.

    I most likely will create several more freestyle blocks. Whatever pops into my mind is what I create at the time I think of it.

    Loving the red and white! Be sure to post when done! I have a red and white one in my head along with redwork embroidered snowmen and hopefully I will get to pull it out of my mind and get it done before the snow flies. I really like your idea of the freestyle blocks. Going to be beautiful!

    Especially like the block at the "6 o'clock" position. Can't help but wonder how fabulous an entire quilt would look with that block - so much dimension and movement!

    Love your blocks, but I think I like the white bordering each block. Maybe you could do some red sashing between each white-bordered block and set them on point. I think that would be a marvelous red and white quilt. Just my humble opinion. Anyhow, I love what you're doing and you've given me inspiration on how to use up some tans and sages I've been ruminating over! Thanks for sharing and for the inspiration.

    Actually I like that one the best as well. Now if I can only duplicate it it would be nice. LOL

    More Freestyle Blocks

    I did a couple more blocks today.

    I now have seven made and am trimming them down to 12.5 inches each.
