Medieval Walls Quilt Block – Part 2

Last week, I introduced the Medieval Walls quilt block and, with the help of Electric Quilt, explored moving contrast around the block and designing several straight sets.

Here’s a couple more examples of moving value around the block:

Let’s see what the Medieval Wall quilt block looks like set on point.

What happens if more than one combination of this block is used in an on point setting?

It is becoming more interesting to me; I like the illusion of circles formed from the different blocks:

How about changing the background color along with the block variations?

All of these designs, both straight sets and the on point sets, created from one simple block!

There’s more, yet, to create!  Color combinations haven’t even been explored…what would this look like in bright and bold colors?  Soft pastels?  Your favorite football team’s colors?  Scrappy?

I’m happy to have Electric Quilt; it is so easy to explore design!

  2. I’m interested in the border, what were the dimensions of the strips?

    • Thank you for stopping by, Jacki! If you make your own version, I sure would love to see a photo of it!

      The outer is 5″ wide. The spacer strip is 1″ wide. The inner border is composed of five 1″ strips set with 5″ corner blocks. 🙂
