    Same block, different setting


    Recently I posted pictures of a quilt that I had made for a grand daughter

    I liked the the uniqueness of how I could set the blocks and create different looking tops and here is a pic of the basic block

    So I headed to my stash, found enough fabrics and got to work on this top for my husband. I knew I wanted a different layout from the first quilt, so this is what I came up with. Sort of eclectic , but I am happy with it. It will be a summer weight king size quilt when it is finished with some borders

    A home is built of peace and love,
    and not of wood and stone,
    a place where happiness lives
    and memories are sewn.

    Great job working with one block and coming up with different looks. I can't tell you how often I have made blocks according to a pattern and then re-arranged them so they don't resemble the original quilt. It's great fun.

    great block, a lot you can do with it. love how you set it. very pretty
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    How neat! There's quite a bit of difference when you rotate a few blocks, eh? Nice job. I'm sure your dh will be very happy with it as well!
    Go forth and sew!

    Very visible difference! What fun with half square triangles. I like your choices of fabrics and arrangements.
