I discovered I'm not good at numbering. The first 2 blocks I called 1 and 2. Then I did 2 and 3. Now that I've noticed my mistake, I've skipped 10 and gone on to 11 and 12.
These next two blocks are made on the diagonal which introduces triangles along the edge. Both finish to be 10 inches.
The first block I couldn't find a good name for. It was in EQ 7 as "A Snowflake" and "Wide Cross X" but I couldn't find pictures of similar blocks with the same name.
So, I'm going with "Wide Cross X" because it is shaped like an X. The 4 pink triangles come from one 7 1/4 inch square that is cut in fourths on the diagonal. This leaves the straight of grain on the edges of the block. The center square is 3 3/8.
For my modern version I switched the values making the triangles darker than the cross. Wouldn't a quilt made of alternating light and dark versions of this block look striking?
For the next block I found a name and confirmed it in multiple places. It is Mosaic #3 and I found a tutorial here. Of course, it's for the wrong size. This block finishes to 10 inches so the plaid squares and center squares were cut to 4.5 inches.
The top, bottom, left and right triangles were cut from one 6 1/4 inch square and the 4 corner triangles from two 3 3/8 inch squares, each cut in half on the diagonal. That leaves the straight of grain along the edges.
I wasn't thinking while cutting the triangles and piecing so the birds are going in different directions. But, it doesn't really matter. With the bold black, green and blue fabric, the gray and white birds fade into the background.
There are many guides on how to cut edge and corner triangles. Here's a good one.
