I think I am going to call this project the Alternative Trip around the Block/Blocks, or something like that.
As you can see I decided to leave the white areas untouched on this block. I like the way the stitching flattens the red.
I like the way the lines all criss-cross in the middle.
Here it is with it's partner.
The Asterisk block is my favourite out of the two and if I ever did decide to make a whole quilt with this block it might look something like this!
**This is part of my own personal challenge to create and learn a bit more about traditional quilt blocks while adding my own twist, as described here. I am following the free Block of the Month classes on Craftsy as my guide
