    Default A little different

    Jennie did a tutorial last week with this block. The thing that makes it different is the 1" strip on 4 of the blocks. She did it with the center an all 4 inside blocks in white. I just thought it would be a nice quilts of Valor but hated all the white. So gold in the center, creams on the four middle blocks with a dark strip on each,and then dark blocks on the corners with gold sashes. I like it and I think it pops more.

    Genius!

    All the white wasn't my cup of tea, either, and I kind of "bypassed" the block. Seeing your color choices, I'm suddenly interested in it again. Thank you for sharing!

    Ediane, I was also not a fan of so much white. Your solution is artistic genius!

    I like your quilt it is very original variation, the gold makes the blocks stand out, it is a quilt to take advantage of those remains that we are collecting in bag and do not know what to do with them, congratulations on your beautiful work

    Very nice. I like your fabric choices much better than all that white in the tutorial.
