Such fun

Drawing these blocks is such fun. This is the first of my geometric designs, drawn in EQ6. I love the beautiful radiating shapes in this block. All the seams are straight stitching.

I've combined four blocks to show you the secondary patterns that emerge. Magic, isn't it? I need to modify some of the shapes to make them more straightforward to piece and, after I've done that, I'll sew a sample block to test it. Stand by!

Erica, this looks like a "sunflower" block to me. Do you know that the Museum of the American Quilter's Society in Paducah, Kentucky (USA) is having a contest now, email entry photos due November 1st or 2nd. The theme is New Quilts from an Old Favorite - Sunflower block. Take a look. Your quilt is beautiful.
