When I first saw that Loop the Loop block in the previous post, I initially thought of the block called Mr. Roosevelt's Necktie. Quilter's Cache has one and I am using their image. You can see the quarter snow balls but not the Bright Hopes or Twist block portion.
Then here is much the same block but I revised it for less pieces and recolored it
BlockBase does not list a block called Y bridge but really it is just a variation of that Mr. Roosevelt's Necktie. Blockbase does show another version though with the same name. LOL, they often do. #2534. How do you even piece that?? Avoid miters at all costs!
So I set to revising and because I love red and aqua together I recolored it, LOL
Too many joining lines again---I hate sewing the same colored block to the same colored block when a larger square would work better. I drew grid lines through my printout. You can see the square in a square, plain squares, two patches of rectangles and filler around the periphery of the quilt.
I drew up block sectioning---you can see them there and I based everything on a 2.5 inch grid for a quilt that would finish 50 x 70 minus borders. That woman who wrote that book about borderless quilts has nothing on me, LOL. A screen shot of EQ with a portion completed.
And finally, here is the revamped quilt with the revised block of Mr. Roosevelt's Necktie
Would I make one? Maybe but it is too late for the quilt kit I have cut out. Will I ever finish that one since it has been sitting for 14 years now? Who knows? I would be MORE likely to do the revamped version and I am not that nuts about doing square in squares either. Thing is, can I even call it Mr. Roosevelt's Necktie at this point with all those changes? In fact, now it reminds me more of a block called 1727d Broken Wheel, a Rolling Stone Variation
For now I am going to leave that one alone, LOL but mostly because I already know how I would piece it, don't I?
Now that lunch is over I am back to my door stop sewing project #2 that could be possibly finished up today. Cross your fingers!
