Chain Blocks

Pinned up some of these blocks to get an idea how big an area they cover:
I decided I only needed a few more blocks, so I cut the extra units out of lighter fabrics because this lot seem lacking in value contrast.

Now I need to make decisions about setting triangles. In the published pattern (Bonnie Hunter's Carolina Chain) all the setting triangles are darker blue fabrics. That might not work with mine. What colour/s would you use?


  1. Great scrappy quilt! I'd probably go with a brick red or a darker blue.

  2. I agree darker and like the idea of brick red, perhaps extending it in both directions through to oranges and also towards rich browns. That may tie together the colours you have already used and also contrast with the many blues as well.
