LCQA Block 9




The Layer Cake Quilt Along Block Nine was designed by Jovita Goldschmidt.
There were four choices for layout on this block. I decided to make a 5th choice.


She called this block "U Pick"; so I picked an "off the board" option and made it my own. All of the designer's choices were fully symmetrical. I chose to make it mirror image symmetrical. My version looks different if turned sideways. My peculiar brain wanted to play with the pieces a bit, and when I saw this layout, I liked it.


I have not forgotten the tutorial on cutting bias binding. I will post it once I have pictures and/or video. Sorry for the delay.

I love the colors and fabrics. I had to look harder to find the mirror image that separates your block from one with perfect symmetry. No surprise that you made it your own!

Great block! When I saw you selected the 5th choice I thought "but wait, there were only 4". I should not be surprised that you came up with something original and beautiful!!

I really liked this block. I, too, saw many potential variations and am thinking about doing a quilt just using this block in as many variations as I can think of. Oh, and I really like your color combination as well as your variation.
