Designer Duo QAL Block 2
Well hello! It’s time for block two, Inbound Flight.
I know you might be thinking ‘but Elisabeth, this block looks so similar to block 1,’ and while you’d be right, there are some key differences in the blocks that really help create movement through the quilt!
The main difference to note is the direction the geese fly. On this block, they’re flying toward the center of the block, and on block 1 they fly away. Also, the setting sections of this block don’t have geese, favoring instead large half-square triangle units with setting triangles.
Hot Tip!: Don’t be afraid to switch out the background placement. Compare the two blocks above side-by-side to see how changing where the white fabrics are placed gives these blocks an entirely different feel.
If you’re wanting your blocks to fade from one color to another, make sure your fabric pull starts with a very dark, ends with a very light, then fills with many shades in between. If one fabric seems too out of place, try adding in a transitional shade. Remember to keep an eye on your color map to make sure the fabric placement is as desired.
