Block Rock’n Week 11 – Global Concepts

by Julie Hirt

Every other Friday I’ve been posting a free “Block Rock’n” paper piecing template.   The blocks are named after bands, singers or maybe even a song title. This week brings you Global Concepts:

I had a tough time naming this block.  Mainly because I have dozens of musicians I’d like to tribute a block with only a few blocks left to name.

Every time I hear this song I crank up the volume full blast. It makes me want to… well, like the lyrics say, f*cking dance.

Symmetry exists only in our mind
Our brain is seeing squares

Robert Delong is a young genius. He writes, sings and creates all the music.

Listen to the video and look at this.   It’s just a good fit for this block.

A bit of Photoshop play let me see what a full quilt would look like.

Global concepts aren’t common the world round
But we share a mortal frame

I love the little stars that form between the blocks. If you used a different color on the outside it will something like this:


You  can see a star in the center of each block as well a different color star that forms between the blocks.
