This block starts out as a 9-patch. Blue in the four outer corners, and red in the center. I'm working with a charm pack, so there are many prints to choose from. After the 9-patch is pieced, ironed, and measured, it is cut down the middle vertically and horizontally. Then the upper left and lower right are flipped around and then reassembled as a 4-patch. Sounds easy and is easy.
I'm stopping this with 9 squares + borders and calling it a lap quilt. Sometimes my vision for a design, gets very covered up by beautiful fabric.
I think my paper-pieced project is calling my name today. It's mindless, enjoyable sewing. Plus the results are very predictable, very traditional. Hopefully, tomorrow I can show you finished blocks.
