Spinneret Block

Here's the block itself. I designed it in EQ7 as a 12 inch block, simply drawing the lines of the piecing  on the Easy Draw worktable. I like to have the blocks I design connect to an adjoining block and by giving this one "open arms", it connects very well from block to block providing lots of movement and design possibilities.

  2. This is a fun and clever block. You could use so many bright-colored fabrics. Just gorgeous. Thank you so much for being a part of QM 100 Blocks, Volume 7 and sharing another block with us. Also, thank you for the chance to win a copy of this awesome magazine and those chubby fat quarters that you are going to use to make this block.

  24. Setting blocks next to each other can sometimes give a very interesting secondary design --- I can see that this is true with your block. I'd also like to try it with an "on point" set.
