A chorus repeats
Poems often include rhyme or repetiition
I’m on record as abhoring cookie cutter work
What’s the difference?
How are these two blocks the same?
How are these two blocks different?
The blocks are a part of KISS blocks from Quilt Club. The requesting member shares a pattern, and fabric possibilities, or perhaps provides fabrics to use in the block construction. The next month everyone brings back their square to share with the “requester.”
Same: These two blocks are both from the Jacob’s Ladder pattern.
Shapes are either squares or triangles.
All shapes began as squares.
Both have 3 rows of squares.
5 squares are the same; 4 other squares are the same.
Both squares have stars printed on the fabric
Different: #2 is comprised of batiks and #1 is general fabric.
#1 has 3 fabrics; #2 has 2 fabrics.
#1 has squares and hearts in the fabric; #2 has rectangles and swirls.
What else do you see?
How many squares do you see?
Do variations of a pattern create more interest rather than cookie cutter sameness?
