Hi All! I was thrilled to have my block “Inversion” included in The Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks volume 15! You can find it on page 54 – Block #1487. Being a voracious reader, I fell in love with the Literary line by Heather Givans as soon as I saw it, and had so much fun using it in this block!

Block #1487, Inversion, designed by Stephanie Sheridan, using Literary by Heather Givans.

When I was working on this block I actually made 2 – and had a hard time deciding which to submit! I asked a few friends at Windham to help me make the choice. Here is the alternate block – which do you like better?

There are a few things I really like about this block design! First, you can have a fun time with a smaller scale focal fabric in the 4 snowball blocks. Second, the half square triangles and quarter square triangles are quick and easy to make. And third, you can get some really cool secondary patterns in a quilt layout!

Here are 2 different layouts – see the secondary patterns? Someday I am going to find the time to make one of these quilts!

    I like the blue and gold block most, which surprised me, as the date stamp fabric is one of my favorites in this line. However, when they were made up into quilts, I thought the other block was the stronger choice.

    I do like the magenta/gray design the best, especially the last design. If I made this design with these fabrics, I would donate it to my library for their next auction–I’m sure they will be having one soon.
