I pulled out the eight 2x2 blocks and spent a couple of days digging in Stashzilla again. I came up with several almosts, but in pure daylight was still not happy. Finally! A light cream on cream surfaced from the depths. I cut my 8 new squares last night and sewed the block together late this afternoon.
I think my first Country Corners block and I are going to be able to co-habit happily now!
Originally, I was thinking that this would be a square set quilt, but after seeing Cindy's wonderful on point block in Lynn's recent post about her Sew'n Wild Oaks Class, (click there!) I had one of those Ta-Da! moments! I've always loved on point settings, so I'm probably going to be assembling the upcoming blocks with that in mind.
In this setting I really like that all my colors are drawn out to the outer edges and that with this placement I've created a double star.
Have you spun a block recently to see how it works on point?
