I enjoyed stitching the square spirals. I love the look of them; they remind me of Aztec designs. Yes, I kind of went overboard with straight lines as I completely ignored the circles and made little target symbols instead.
Partly I was "cheating" (and I have no qualm about that!), but I'm also trying to master free hand quilting, that is stitching without following marked lines. I also discovered a bonus visual effect: my not so perfect, not so straight lines set against the circles really made them pop, giving them a subtle 3 dimensional feel.
Here is the finished block:
And the back:
At this point, I hope you're beginning to experiment with each block too. Even if you're just changing things up a little bit, coloring outside the lines--so to speak--or even adding your own designs I've found to be so helpful in the learning process.
Until the next design!
