Two Blocks: Stripe & Whatever

A dramatic pattern---maybe about 1900

If you were going to explain the pattern you might show it as a four patch.
A Shoo Fly block alternating with a striped block.

About 1940

Single Wedding Ring alternating with a stripe.
It's a good idea but alas I don't have a BlockBase name or number for it

I would guess it might best be described as an alternate block set.

About 1900
Sort of like a Snowball or an Irish Chain.

Stripes based on a division of three.

About 1900

An alternate triple stripe block would be a good set for any bold nine-patch block based on the same proportions.
Here's a 9-patch star alternating.

On Point: Looks more complicated than it is.


And speaking of diagonals.
