When planning this block, I couldn’t bring myself to decide what fabrics to choose and, above all, how many different.
I was very much tempted to use three different prints, instead of two. A third one for the centre square and the four little adjoining squares. Or to do the green half square triangles in a different print. I found many examples of these versions and liked them all.
In the end, I followed Laurie’s example. But I gave this block a new twist by choosing only green prints. Green being the “special” colour in my otherwise tourquoise quilt, I am curious about how this block will fit into the quilt in the long run.
You might have noticed that Prairie Queen consists of almost exactly the same components as Railroad. Yet, how different do they look!
