Two blocks alternating in a quilt usually creates more than twice as much design interest. My favorite two-block quilts are those where the designs of the individual blocks are not immediately apparent so the viewer is kept guessing. /sit a diagono/-set qui/t or straight? Exactly where ore the blocks? How big are they? Here are some more things I keep in mind when designing two-block quilts. Choose blocks that are based on the sarne grid. The blocks in Summer 8/iss are both on a 4×4 grid.
Fabricate carefully. When choosing fabrics, Summer Bliss Quilt Pattern, consider starting with a multicolor print for the border. Then select a good variety of coordinating prints. The featured quilt showcases fabrics with different densities (packed floral versus open backgrounds), styles (floral and geometric), and values (light and dark), which creates a pleasing balance.

When choosing two blocks to combine in a quilt like this, you can test out if they will work out together by making several paper copies of each of the blocks and laying them out like you would the fabric blocks.
