This is the original Traveling Eddie.
I love quilt blocks that create other "hidden" blocks when put together in a group. I also enjoy it if you change the color, value, etc... around and then the quilt takes on a whole new different look. That is what I tried to accomplish here.
The joy of this quilt block is that it is simple. It is full of half square triangles and 2" squares. This is easy to piece together, easy to work with, and brings a little joy when it all comes together.
When I was making the original block, I had a more masculine look in mind. I picked fabrics and colors that could work for men and women alike. But as time passed, my girly side wanted to make a showing.
So....Here's my girly traveling Eddie (maybe Edith?). Changing the colors up a bit, and switching things around brings a different look to the quilt, and provides a different feel. Honestly, this little quilt brings me a some joy.
What colors do you want in your Traveling Eddie?
