I want to do the 10 minute block that was recently shown on this board by Suzanne McNeil. However I would like my finished block to be 12" so I can quilt a feathered wreath in each block that is 11.5" The quilt will be 7 blocks by 8 blocks. I have 58 different FQ of beautiful fall batiks in..greens, orange-rust, golds, & reds-burgundy. For the diamond in the middle of each block I plan on using the batik- Gardenia- it is a pale yellow based neutral. Whic would be the best way to set the blocks:
1. make all 4 of the blocks in the 12" big block different colors
2. make both sets of the diagonal blocks in the 12" big block different colors (only 2 colors, not counting the diamond
in the middle)
3. make all 4 of the blocks in the 12" big block the same color
I have been thinking on this since last Wed. I need some fresh input, PLEASE!
