Moccasin Block of the Month Club - April

Apr 1, 2015

I'm excited to show you April's block for the Moccasin Block of the Month Club.  Today the pattern goes out and I can't wait to see what you do with this one.

This block is an original design called Bosonic String.  It is based on the form of the classic Old Maid's Puzzle block, but I've simplified it a bit and made the focus of the block a set of strings in the main large triangles.  Strings make such a unique addition to a block.  Have you tried strings before?  I think you'll be surprised that they are not nearly as hard as they seem.  String blocks are made on a foundation paper that makes them easy to piece.

Block #5 (Bosonic String - shown in Yellow and Orange Colorways)
Fabric is Cotton Supreme Solids by RJR Fabrics for my version of the BOM.

Here's another version of Bosonic String.  This block was submitted to Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks and came back a reject.  :)  I still love it.  This sample shows you how the block has a different look when you vary the width of the strings.  (As compared to the Moccasin block which uses only 1" strings.)
