Square Block

This design is one of my earlier ones that finally got round to be written and diagrammed. It is a square motif that I made as one of the entries in my 25-motif challenge.

I have since completed my challenge but I encourage you to visit the challenge blog and see the work of others tatters who are still participating in the challenge. And if you have not done so, you may be tempted to join up.

The picture above is showing four of the square blocks joined together to make a bigger square.

Pattern uses two shuttles

  7. There are many things that you can do with this one basic block. I particularly like the way the corners come together when joined and turned into the centre of attraction, sort of.
