#7 Birds in the Air
I think I want to marry this block. Seriously. If I didn't hate triangles so much I'd make a giant king-sized quilt with this exact block repeated over & over & over ...
# 18 Century of Progress
Ok. The fabric placement in the book for this block TOTALLY drove me banana-nuts-crazy.
I mean, I get random, deliberate mistakes and even symbolism (I think I read on the Flickr Group that this block has something to do with a Ferris Wheel), but I usually crave symmetry. And this block just looked like ... like ... well, like someone should stop messing around and fix it already! So that's what I did for mine.
And I'm not the only one with this problem 'cause I've seen LOTS of FWQALers alter this block too. I consider myself to be in good company here. :)
So with all due respect to the very lovely person who designed this block, here's my "century" that progressed to "symmetry".
