I know, I said I wouldn’t start sewing this. But I had to try a few blocks! I’m not sure what this block should be called but I have decided to call it Twist.

A few of you said this was the Garlic Knot that Bonnie Hunter is doing. It is similar but not the same. Garlic Knot has a couple contrasting squares in the middle. I’m not sure how I will set these yet, but there are lots of possibilities here.

Have a great day!

    I love it, Katy! The top layout appeals to me. Can’t wait to see a larger overview. t.

    I like this block – it has so many possibilities. As for which layout, I’d probably wait until I had more blocks. But #2 is interesting.

    Twist is a perfect name for this block….when I first saw your drawing on yesterday’s post, it reminded me of the tie twists that are on bread wrappers! It also made me think of pretzels….funny how those images just pop in our minds…..
    I knew you would jump in and make a few blocks! Will enjoy seeing how you decide to set the blocks…love the look of the blocks already….

    I like both layouts and I think either would look great.

    Love the simple design; scrappy, or a one color is on my bucket list.
