A little while ago I commented to David that I was working on my D. When I told him that, I really meant that I was working on them. For AB and C, I had several quilts and quilt blocks already made that I could photograph. When it came to D, I could not find anything.
I was deteremined to keep to my theme, though, so I just had to do some piecing.
This one is called Dutchman's Puzzle. It is another block design from the Ladies' Art Company and is a pretty simple block to put together.
This next block is a challenging one to piece because of the curves, but with a few pins and a little practice it is not so bad. You can see the parts under construction here. The block is called Drunkard's Path.
Once the individual pieces are made, they can be assembled in a number of different ways. I though I had a name for this one, but could not find it again. It is similar to Fool's Puzzle.
Arranged like this, the blocks become Doves--do you see them?
This arrangement is a Chain.
...and this one is Polka Dots.
There are lots of other possibilities, and I do not know which I will choose when I put these parts together.
