Since finishing the Carpenter Star top, I’ve been on the lookout for another block to explode.
Do you have a block encyclopedia? I use EQ for designing quilts and while I often use blocks from there, I like to page through a book with blocks and modify or draw my own many times. My absolute favorite book for this is The Quilter’s Album of Patchwork Patterns by Jinny Beyer.
I didn’t use one of the exact blocks in the book – but I played around with squares and half square triangles until I came across this result and I’ve got some pretty purples in the stash that would work. Not sure when I’ll get to it but I love it.
