Francine asked me today if my Cropped Blocks could be used in combination, making the quilt center with one pattern and border with another. I was sure that would work, but I still had to play with them, just to see what I could create. Here's the result.
The blocks I used were Cropped Star and Jen's Marble. The blocks in the center were rotated and flipped. The border blocks not changed very much, but could be played with as much as you want. Thanks for the push, Francine! That was fun!
The blocks are designed as squares and will rotate and fit together with no problem. Allowing the software to size them for total quilt dimensions may adjust length and/or width and cause them not to fit together when rotated. See the pdf below for full instructions on setting up a quilt like this.
Anita has a long background rooted in traditional handwork and quiltmaking, which she still enjoys.
Often, these days, you'll find her digitizing patterns for the Statler Stitcher and other computerized longarm quilting machines. Her summer days are spent in the garden and she loves finding new ways to prepare good veggie-based meals.
She's always in search of a way to balance all of those activities and find time to share with others who are passionate about the same things.
This page is a sneak peek into what's happening in her world right now.
