    Hum. What about using the disappearing 4-patch in this tute: http://sewwonderful.blogspot.com/201...o-9-patch.html using the camo paired with each individual color and then staggering the colors across diagonally? I'm sure there are more people out there that can actually envision what it would look like a lot better than I can.

    How about the easy pinwheel pattern. Take two contrasting 4" squares,right sides facing each other, sew 1/4" all the way around. press, cut corner to corner both ways. Open them and press and sew your pinwheel together. Its quick and easy and makes a great kids quilt.

    That's a great idea. If you would stagger the blocks, I think it would resemble pixel camo.

    Got any more black? You could add black to the right side and the bottom of each block. sew them together alternating the colors. It would be a nice "shadow" quilt.

    Quick, easy and should look awesome!
    I like this idea!

    The disappearing 4-patch that Happy Treadler recommended would be my choice too.

    Lay them out randomly--totally random. Step back. Take a digital photo. Evaluate. Buy more camo print fabric for Bigger pieces to incorporate with the small ones.
