The October EQ Doodles are up and its time to look at scrappy versions. But first here’s the Rolling Crosses block with some colour – the original block could look like this
or if you swap the colours of the inner triangles you get windmills instead of crosses.
Put into quilts they would look like these.
But what happens when we make them from scraps? First of all are sixteen blocks and each is different
Suppose we make the outer triangles the same colour? You then get pinwheels forming where the four blocks meet. The dark version
looks quite different from the light version.
If you want to have a go at making this block you can download templates for a 6inch block or for a 12 inch block. And if you just fancy a spot of colouring-in then you can download a quilt to colour.
