I'll call this the Woven Nap quilt. It is meant to be the sidekick to a larger baby quilt. It is 33 inches square and backed with light purple fleece. It was such fun to make and quilt up.
I just knew this block had interesting design potential so I let EQ do the work. What a superb program Electric Quilt is, the absolute most fun you can have with a computer!
Okay, so here is the basic block:
12 " finished
I worked up some layout examples.
Woven Nap Quilt 2 - 33" x 33
4 blocks rotated - to mix it up
Woven Baby Quilt 1 - 45 x 45
9 blocks - straight set (not rotated)
Woven Baby Quilt 2 - 45 x 45
9 blocks - rotated
Woven Lap Quilt 2 - 62 x 74
20 blocks - rotated several times
and finally, I love this one!
Woven Lap 3 On Pointe
no rotation necessary! 52 x 65
The white centers can accommodate applique motifs or fancy quilting.
Maybe I show too many examples? I like to see how a design works up in the quilt sizes I make the most.
I really, really like this block! I also like how rotating the blocks make it look like you've gone to great trouble to mix it up and blend the colors. Often, the on-pointe layout is a winner.
