Keryn quite rightly pointed out that I wasn't actually making Rolling Stone blocks, but a variation. I put the extra square in square block in the centre, thinking that would use up more, but it has changed the overall effect. The ring in the centre is missing and it has lost the circular movement.

Of course there was no other option, I had to start making the genuine blocks.

The other blocks will have to wait now until I build up some more scraps for them, so I needed a new project. And of course I don't want to be saved from my obsessions, I get so much done! I'm not nauseated yet, so I'll keep churning these out, and see how far I get.

I like both versions actually but if I had to choose I would pick the first scrappier ones you've been making.

These blocks are looking great too. I'm partial to the square in square units, so I like those better, but both set will make great quilts.

slight changed can make such a change to the look of the blocks

Oh, yes, I do like the new ones you are making. I hadn't really thought about what you called the first ones. Your new batch really does look like the traditional rolling stones blocks.

There are a lot worse things to be obsessed about, that's for sure. I wish I could be that way about sewing and housework, rather than the computer. The blocks all look good to me.

I like these blocks as much as your first set... Very pretty!
