Or more importantly...any reason why I should not do it this way?
I'm making a large quilt with a shoofly border.
Each shoofly will be one color (assorted) with white in the middle and corners.
Usually the shoofly block is made of nine patch with HST's in the corner.
What if I just cut one long strip and add white squares in the corner
and sew diagonal lines? That's for the top and bottom.
The middle will be as usual color square/white/color square.
Would that be ok? Or would it look better the traditional way?
Hope this is clear.
By the way, I'm talking about this shoofly block
