Carol here, aka comicbooklady....I really like this block. I won't have time to make a huge quilt, so I want to concentrate on making the one block. I am fascinated with this block, I look at it and I want to know what the short cut is to making this block; it's like a puzzle. There has to be a quick way to make this block, only no one told me the secret!...but since this is to be an exercise in liberation, I have to do away with the shortcuts and rebuild this block from the centre green square and out. To "liberate" this block, I think, I will not make all the rows even widths, so I am hoping it will achieve a wonky, stretched look, but we shall see. I love the colours used in this one, but I don't have those, so next I will search my stash to substitute the red, green, black and white and gray (or is that a light purple, can't really tell).
