Hello Quiltmaker fans! Today is day 3 of Quiltmaker's Blog tour to launch Volume 6 of the very popular 100 Blocks. Welcome and let's talk about my block, Tropical Flags!
It is an honor every single time to be included among so many wonderful designers, some I call friend as well. This time I worked out of my normal color pallette and kept with the paper piecing...it is just too much fun.

If you go to town and make all the above blocks, you get a really nice size quilt (48 x 60) even before borders. I also really like the secondary pinwheels.
Want a bit more bang for your buck? Try breaking the block apart and alternating the quadrants with other blocks. In this variation, I used half square triangles.
Put a bunch together for this variation. With 12" blocks, you will have a 48" square wall hang in no time.
I have so many ideas once I get going on one of these designs because the possibilities are endless. Have some fun with the design and send a picture when you finish:)
