My block is a scrappy version of a traditional block, one with many names! According to the Encyclopedia of Pieced Quilt Patterns by Barbara Brackman, it has no less than EIGHT names!
Traditional block with many names:
the Road to Paris
Jack in the Pulpit
|Monkey in the Middle block|
And in a quilt.
|Large square-in-a-square units emerge when the blocks are joined without sashing.|
Now for the giveaway. Leave a comment telling me if you have ever modified a traditional block to make something new and if you enjoyed the process!
