Last week, I shared a post on creating a swirling four patch block using EasyDraw. If you missed that post, you will want to check out the post and video, as we will be supersizing our work from last week.
Suzanne Golden shared her ideas for using this block in a couple of quilts.
This block has even more possibilities. The large square in the center is conducive to creating a merge block. Merge blocks is a feature under the Serendipity options in the Block Worktable.
As an extra bonus the merged blocks would work well in a sampler quilt.
In my video tutorial, I will my process for creating the blocks and the quilt.
Here is one of the merged blocks created with serendipity.
Here is the sampler quilt from the video.
