    Since I am on a fabric moratorium for the rest of the year, I am trying to use up a lot of the 4, 5, and 6" fabric sample squares I have accumulated. Here is a quilt using up 6" squares, and some five inch squares. At first when deciding if to put on a border I thought I would need something to calm it down, I saw the black and white check and thought,,,no, really, oh give it a try. I think it works.
    Blocks are free cut in a slash, mix and sew. No particular pattern except that they radiate out from the center. The black square was an after thought but I think it gives the quilt definition.

    Love your quilt! The black center really does make the blocks pop.
