For the last few years, I’ve been designing quilts made from one block that can be arranged in a number of different settings. These quilts are quick and easy to make thanks to chain piecing. The real fun begins when you arrange the blocks on your design wall to see which setting suits you and your fabric. I’ve named this series of patterns “Blocks on the Move”. It seemed like an appropriate name since that’s what you do with the blocks. . . .move them around on your design wall until you come up with a setting you like. Over the next couple of weeks, I’ll show you other quilts from the series. First up is “Frame of Mind”. The pattern gives directions for Crib, Lap and Queen sizes.

Here are a few photos of Crib size quilts in progress from a recent class:

Final setting chosen by student:
Kaffe Fassett fabrics were chosen by this student. Sometimes the fabrics dictate the setting.
This student tried a number of different settings. They all looked good, but she chose. . . . . . .
. . . . . .this setting. I made this quilt made from the same fabrics she used.
The pattern shows different setting for each size quilt. Here are two settings shown in Lap size.
