This week we're making the popular Calico Puzzle. This is a great little block that never lets you down and looks good with everything. http://www.quilterscache.com/C/CalicoPuzzleBlock.html I've been taking pictures with my cell phone to download but I've messed up my settings or something. I have the pictures on my phone but can't get them to download. I'll keep messing with it today until I figure it out what I've done. In the meantime, here are a couple of pretty pictures. http://quiltingbeargal.blogspot.com/2011/06/civil-war-quilt-block-25.html http://vickisews.blogspot.com/2015/01/farmers-wife-quilt-2014-instalment-2.html I wanted to show a picture of a quilt made only of Calico Puzzle blocks but the only ones I could find show it set block to block. You lose the design when it's set that way and it looks like a pinwheel quilt. Here's an illustration:http://www.jeannesquilting.com/free/puzzle.html Noting wrong with pinwheels but if I want to show off the pattern, I prefer to set them with alternate plain blocks or sashing. I couldn't find a picture of a quilt with that setting but here's one with scrappy blocks laid out with a little space between them. Hopefully, this gives you an idea of what I'm talking about. You don't see pinwheels, you can still see the block pattern.
