Turning Point is made from 4 rectangular blocks. I have also used this block in another quilt with a totally different effect. Originally I had intended to fill in the center but after several tries the quilt told me it didn't need or want a center.
This is one of the 4 blocks and you can see the 3 curved sections that make up the block. Each section was constructed using my Tubular Spiral Patchwork method.
Someone suggested it could be work as a poncho so just for the fun of it I modeled it over a royal blue jumpsuit one time!
Blooming Balloon was the other quilt that started with the same block. I made several alterations to the block but it still has the same basic block as the starting point. This is composed of 2 mirror image blocks.
Tonight's puzzle is one block from Turning Point.
