This week’s practice block is the Wyoming Valley Star.
It is drawn with a 6 x 6 grid.
And here is how it looks set side-by-side in a straight set:
How about a little color to add a spark to the quilt? All I did was draw a line across the four corners of the block and popped the color in.
Let’s open up the design a bit. This time I deleted lines from the Wyoming Valley Star quilt block to create alternate blocks.
The same block looks different when the color is moved around.
It is nice to have open spaces to show off your quilting skill.
The next design is similar to the first, but the Wyoming Valley Star quilt block is now set on point:
Another variation on point:
Lots of room for quilting!
If I were to make one of these last two, I think I would play with border variations. I might like something simpler to go with the simpler quilt design.
What do you think?
