The Magnolia Bud quilt block is a sweet spring block.
I drew it in Electric Quilt with a 4 x 4 grid. If you have BlockBase, it is #2208.
Set side-by-side in a straight set, it looks like this:
Soft and sweet. Except that my eye is focused on that green, and if I were to make this, I’d try a softer green.
Let’s see how the design looks if some of the blocks are rotated:
I like that better (and I would still change the green to a more muted green).
What if bolder color is added?
What if two of the greens, and two of the pinks were reversed?
What do the Magnolia Bud blocks look like when separated by sashing and cornerstones?
What if the center square of the quilt block was replaced with a four patch, and alternated with the original block?
