ONE BLOCK MANY WAYS

Saturday, at the Attic Window Quilt Shop, Chris demonstrated the many ways you can arrange the Attic Window block.

Would you realize that this is simply an Attic Window block?

Here she has curved the pieces to give the block a different look.

And when you turn them around they look like this. Something completely different.

And here she shows you what it would look like using different fabrics with the same block. What fun it was to challenge our ideas about a traditional block.
.
Oh Fransson has a Paint Box Quilt tutorial that you might like. She calls it a Quilt A Long since she started it several months ago. However, you can see how it's made and get the pattern details even if you don't participate in the Quilt A Long. I love the quilt with the clear bright colors. This would be perfect for a child's Christmas present.

Until next time,
Caroll

Those are neat. And when you have several of them in a quilt together, it would change the look even further! Neat demonstration! Clever.

That is too cool - I love it where it looks like a frame. Never thought of that, duh. LOL!

How interesting!! Never thought about rearranging the Attic Window block as Chris has done. Love the possibilities. Thank you for sharing.

Love the link as well.

Have a super great day.
