Let me count the ways I love this block! Geometry was one of my favorite classes in high school – I like the preciseness of the angles, and how if you change one thing there is an equal and opposite reaction to it.
And after looking at my blocks, I was also looking for more traditional patchwork patterns to get some of the darker colors back in. In trying to get a lot of contrast, I’ve been putting in a lot of eggshell, ivory, cream, pale grey and so forth. A block that has a variety of darker colors will not only make those stand out, but this block stands on itself very well.
