I have always enjoyed combining two different blocks in a quilt to produce secondary patterns.  This is an idea I have used repeatedly over the years.  Especially, it is fun to combine 45 degree triangles with 60 degree triangles to give the illusion of curves.

These are the two blocks I alternated in this design.

 The centers for block #1 were fussy-cut to make center medallions.

Part of the design was carried into the border to partially complete the illusion of a curve.

Beautiful! Great touch to have the special centers. Adds exactly the right touch. I also like 2-block quilts. So many design choices.
