Susie's block sparked my imagination of various settings and visions of possible color options - an affliction often common to quilters. I would like to share some of those visions today, along with an EQ7 file. If you have EQ7 installed on your computer, you can open this file and continue designing with this block and layouts.
I wondered how Susie's version of the Broken Sugar Bowl block would evolve if I swapped the light and dark colors and incorporated them as alternating blocks. I used these two color combinations for the block.
This is a 16-block layout, alternating with a specific block coloring and rotation
This is the same 16-block layout, with different block rotations. I like the illusion of rounded paths in this version.
What a surprise effect you get when you set this block into an on-pointe layout! Wow! It makes me think of bamboo.
A final thought ....... I can visualize these designs very scrappy - using light and dark fabrics pulled from the same color family. Very cool!
Susie, Thank You for re-igniting my creativity with this very traditional block. I had been uninspired lately!
What is your vision of the Broken Sugar Bowl block?
Here is the EQ7 project file.
