Apparently I designed a LOT of quilt blocks on 20 Oct 2017. These three are only a few of them. This post focuses on the third block. I’m sure this is a really common quilt block pattern, but I can’t find a name for it anywhere (though I’ve located a few very similar-looking blocks). I decided to call it “Whirling Diamond” till someone comes along and corrects me.
Just discovered that I wasted a bunch of time in January 2020 reinventing a design I made up (a better version of) in October 2017.
It’s been a while since I developed any usable patterns. (I spent some time a few weeks ago working on one that turned out ugly every time—sigh.) Hence the lack of posts. In my silence I’ve acquired several new subscribers—welcome!
A couple of years ago (or more) I started working on pin loom patterns reminiscent of quilt blocks. This was after I began drawing the pattern diagrams on graph paper (instead of writing out all the instructions), but before I drew them on the computer. Few, if any, of the quilt block patterns have been transferred to electronic media. Some of them are pretty cool, if I say so myself. Perhaps posting this new quilt block inspired pattern will start an avalanche. Maybe.
I don’t know if “Kissing Triangles” is a legitimate quilt block name, but it sounded likely.

Just a little housekeeping here…
And Wunderwag Industries has just launched three new loom sizes (3″ x 3″, 1″ x 2″, and 1″ x 6″)!!! Check out the updated/consolidated blog post on Windsweptmind here. Or checkout the also updated older, more photo-y post here.
What a fun contest! We had 52 entries. I received many kind messages—thank you!
It was really tough to choose only three winners … so I picked nine.
