Another experimental block or blocks this week.

I’m looking to give it a name. Some fellow quilters have suggested a number of them: Half stripped, The Zipper block, Ripper Zipper, Reflections, Chameleon, Disguised, Topsy turvey, Arrows, Tricuadra, The Envelope, Flip-a-Dee-doo-da!, My joy, Strip Tease, Robbins of life, Directions.

This uses the half square triangle (HST) technique again. The results are quite interesting. This is a block that is very versatile and has many possibilities.

High contrasting fabrics work best for this type of blocks.

Have a look at some  blocks that can be made with this tutorial (more arrangements can be seen on the video).

  1. You demonstrate some of the best blocks. I’ve made a few and plan to try this one. Hard fabric choices as I don’t like solids.

  2. Your quilts are amazing…thanks so much for sharing your ideas. Is there any chance you could give yardage amounts? Or is there an easy way to figure out how much yardage one would need. Thanks again.

  3. Hi Lynda, there’re some tools out there that help with yardage calculations. You could work out how many blocks you can get from a width of fabric of each colour. Then use that as a base to calculate the fabric needs.
