|Swing in the Center|
An antique quilt made like Nancy Cabot's block can be seen here.
The block can be found in Electric Quilt's BlockBase program as #2782.
I made my 6" block from templates which can be found here.
I put it together like this-
TIP-Mark the sides if the diamond that need to be sewn together in some manner so you don't sew the wrong edges together. The diamonds are not symmetrical so are easy to turn the wrong way.
This Swing in the Center quilt block is in the Spencer Museum of Art and is from the early 1900's. Notice that the corners are made differently. I like the idea of using a flying geese unit at the middle of the sides also.
