Split; 9-Patch - WIP
I thought I'd add blocks with BLUE as the diagonal - I like it! Maybe I'll alternate the blocks - not sure yet but so far, it looks good to me.
At first I found this pattern tedious until I had a duhhhh moment, and practiced webbing the block. Wow - who knew it would increase efficiency and decrease hand movements so dramatically? Of course, webbing is easier with a 9-patch than with a 36-patch but so far, so good. (note to myself ... Why do some clever techniques take me so long to adopt?) Mom always said I was stubborn.
And I noticed the inspirerer (is that a word?) of this piece, Ms. Bonnie, (Quiltville.com) has a new project, with what appears to be the same units.
And I DID manage to finish a challenge R x R block - I hope Jacci likes it! Nopers, no photo. All of them will be revealed at next Guild meeting - I cannot imagine what mine looks like. This has been fun, a stretch to our imagination and skills.
