Circa 2016

TGIF!
It's time to show you the next Circa 2016 blocks. This past week we sewed tiny rail fence blocks. I made one with the dark rails in the centre and one with the light rails in the centre. I don't like either one, since they look too much like swastikas to me. I know it is a sacred symbol in some religions, but for me it has a negative connotation so these blocks might not make it into the final quilt.




Here is the pile of my Circa blocks waiting for more blocks to be sewn and added to the pile. I wonder what we are sewing this week! I'm hopping over to Temecula Quilt Company to see.

  1. I agree with you on this - I simply did not make them. Always easy to make different blocks.

  2. Good job keeping up with the BOM! It will be so beautiful when it's completed!

  3. Yours don't look so much like swastikas, but I agree it's not one of my favorite blocks either.

  4. I can see how they would remind you of a swastika, although I always though they looked more like spinning stars. Remember though that a swastika has an extra bend at the end of each leg. Really all you have there is an offset cross.

  5. I struggled with similar feelings when I made a block from 4 little rail fence blocks for a SAL a few years ago. I had to pick them apart and assemble them differently so they didn't look like that anymore. : )
