Blogger Girls Quilt Along 3

Can you believe it is already March? 
I love the technique and rulers used on this block so I was inspired to 
do something a little different. Be sure and check out off the bloggers 
posts for color options and then Monique’s blog for block instructions.
This could very well be my favorite block so far.
Monique offers 2 color
versions in her instructions, so the more
 I looked at the block,
 the
more intrigued I was.
 Shown above is he color placement per the block instructions.
I just changed one simple triangle and it gave me a whole new block.
Can you see which triangle I changed? 
I wondered what would happen if I made a quilt from just this block. 
How
much movement would it have? 
Would it create secondary designs?
So I played with the exact fabrics but
changing the 
fabric placement slightly
 to have two versions of the same block, shown
above.
Then, 
 
 I thought what about putting the blocks on point. 
Everything is always better on point. I used just one block and 
look how cool and graphic it turned out. Love it!!
 
Stop by and see the color options at the other blogger girls.

    This was one of my favorite blocks, too! And I also love the rulers! I hadn't used the companion one before this quilt and absolutely love the accuracy!
