Today is the day I get to share my block in Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Volume 8! It's always such a great resource for beautiful and unusual quilt blocks, from traditional to modern. My block is called Watermark.
I wanted to create a layered look - where one shape appeared to be sitting on top of another. I think the effect is truly visible when the blocks are set block to block. The corners inter-mingle creating Four-patches and you really lose sight of exactly where the block is. I love when that happens!
And I had to find out how the block would look in a completely different fabric line, so I made a four-block quilt using a layer cake of Scrumptious.
