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.

  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.
