Cardinal Points – July Block of the Month

Cardinal Points – July Block of the Month for the Greenville Modern Quilt Guild

This month’s block is Cardinal Points, a variation of a flying geese pinwheel block. It’s very similar to May’s Yield Block, but you may notice the geese and backgrounds have different proportions. I did this so that the finished quilt would have more movement and interest.

This block would make a sweet baby quilt, especially if you enlarged it to 12, 14, or 16 inches. It’s also fun to play with the negative spaces. I’ll post a couple variations for you later in the month.

You can find the pattern here and the templates can be downloaded here.

Don’t forget to tag me @travlis @GreenvilleMQG #licensedtoquilt  so I can follow along with your creative journey.

Happy sewing!
