Something New

Went to "Gathering Friends Quilt Guild" meeting last night.    Missed June meeting so needed to get caught up on what's happening.

Guild is trying to decide on a block for our logo and asked if anyone had ideas.  I didn't, but when I got home it got me thinking about another new block that has been popping in and out of my head.

This morning I decided to give it a try to see if I could make it work.  The first one is 9.5" square the second was my first attempt and its too small only a 7" square, and because I wasn't being too careful on seams, and the diagonal stretching, had to cut it down to square it up. That's what I get for rushing it.

I really don't think this is the "block/logo" guild is looking for, but I like it and think I'm gonna work on it for my own purpose and make a pattern for sale eventually.

When ever I make a new quilt, block design, I always want to make sure it is an original.  So I check several websites of 100's of existing blocks.  So far I have not found one like mine, so I guess I can say this is Mine!   No name yet - still thinking.

Edit:  several minutes later came up with name I like  Square Dancing
