Humm....do you ever have a quilt block that you're just not sure if you like how it turned out?
We took a trip for Spring Break down to Zion's NP and on the way home stopped at Cove Fort. On one of the beds was appliqued Dresden quilt with 8 points instead of the traditional 12 points. This got me thinking (I should have been paying attention to the tour guide...but oh well). Is there a way to strip piece a darker fabric to a half-square triangle to mimic the Dresden plate? Obviously it would be a "modern" block version as it wouldn't be appliqued.
So...here's my try and I'm not sure if I like how it turned out. What do you think? I have this whole quilt pattern idea in my mind, but I'm not resolved on the quilt block. Humm, I'd love your feedback.
