Aurifil BOM

Did you see the September Aurifil blocks posted over at Pat Sloan's? Take a look here at about 30 variations of the same pattern. It's amazing how each quilter's version of the block is unique. I thought maybe some of the quilters changed their layout design because they looked quite different. But when I studied the blocks, it was simply due to the value placement and your eye notices different parts of the block design.
Anyway, on to October's block which was the quickest and easiest block so far. It's called "Chip off the old block". You can read the designer interview heresee the block pattern here and see the finished blocks here.
This block is a bit odd on it's own, but a whole quilt of these scrappy blocks would be a fun stashbuster.
Only 2 more months to go and these blocks will become a quilt!

That's a nice looking block. I like the simplicity!

I would love to see that as a full quilt.

This block is new to me. It would make a fun scrappy quilt using the light and dark values to define the pattern.

That would be a fun scrappy block done in rainbow colors. One more to add to the contemplation list for next year's RSC!
