One of the quilting magazines did a piece on these blocks. I like them.

That is a nice project. Was interesting to see all the different blocks they uses and the names.

reminds me of the hex signs we used to see on the barns in PA in Amish country! I think it's great-love seeing things like that pop up.

I love it!
I wonder what hubby would say if I painted a giant quilt block on the side of his workshop? :dave: I don't think he would like it as much as I would. :shock:
