Facist Quilt, really?

Just because I finished my Star quilt top, I let myself start another quilt.  When I saw this block somewhere on the blogosphere, it reminded me of a Japanese sashiko pattern.  I sketched it on a piece of paper, and made a couple blocks during the weekend.  I really like them.  I just wish I could remember where I saw it so I could attribute it to the proper person.    

Scott doesn't see the "modern" and "Japanese" in the blocks.  He thinks they looks like a Swastika.  Do they, really?  What do you think?

I don't think it looks like a swastika. I love it!

When I saw it I didn't think that at all. I think it looks great!

The swastika is a traditional Buddhist symbol so how about Buddhist quilt? Just put some prayer flags in there somewhere.

I have to admit that I immediately saw the swastika. But it's a cute swastika.

maybe a bit (especially after you said it), but the different prints draw away from it. i think it's cute.

Swastika? I don't think so, but would love to know how those blocks go together. I like that design.

The block is called Card Trick. Looks like it is made with half-square and quarter-square triangles. Nice block. Great fabrics.

You can google directions for this block. This was one set I found.

面白い模様だねー。とてもユニーク。Swastika、辞書で引かないと意味がわからなかったくらいだから、そうは見えないと思います。(笑)完成が楽しみ!

That is hilarious. I would never have seen it but once I look for it, I totally can.

I like it. The colors are too fresh and innocent to remind me of a swastika

Hey Adrianne,
Now i know where you got the special gift to spark impulse purchase in others:)
Are you sewing a new bedcover and headboard?
