On the same weekend I finished the Fairy quilt, I also finished DeLight.
DeLight. 96″ square. Finished June 2015. Photo by Jim Ruebush.
This quilt began (as most medallions do) with the center block. The design is a variation of an old block called “Odd Fellow’s” block, or alternately, “Odd Fellow’s Chain.” The variation you see above puts one more variable star as the center of the block you see below.
This is what the Odd Fellow’s block looks like if you group four of them:
and if you color it a little differently:
Notice the corners of the block, reaching clear toward the center of the block. Each corner is made like the block called “Old Maid’s Puzzle,” shown below.
When you group four of these, they become the same as an Odd Fellow’s block.
More about my quilt’s design process next time.
