Baton Rouge Square Quilt Block Part 2

We looked at the Baton Rouge Square quilt block in straight sets last week.

Now let’s look at it set on point.

Not bad.  It would make a fun little baby quilt.

How about adding sashing and cornerstones?  And a slight color modification:

That looks good too.

Next, let’s throw in some alternate blocks that were drawn by modifying the Baton Rouge Square quilt block.

Do you like it?

Will you still like it if the color is predominantly purple instead of white (or blue, or whatever one chooses…because we don’t have to have purple, green, white, and yellow)?

Last, a diagonal look:

It isn’t really last, since one could play much more and come up with lots of designs.

Challenge yourself.  Don’t stop with the first design that you come up with.  It might be your favorite, but you won’t know that unless you try different things.

  1. I like the darker border, but I am not sure which design I would like best inside the border!

    I do know I like the last paragraph.

    • I like both the dark and the light versions Judy. Good thing that I don’t have to make them all! LOL!

      If it weren’t for trying blocks in new colorways and variations, quilting wouldn’t be so popular.

I love hearing from you!
