Here are the pics of my blocks I did one using two colours and 6' units. I think that it needs a better contrast between the fabrics than I used, to show the tessellated design better, I spose you could say it has a subtle effect. C'mon :lol: Y'all know me well enough by now to know I don't do subtle :lol:

The other block is made using the 3" units in a three colour layout



Silver Maple made with sixteen 3' units

Ohhhh, nice one Colletta :thumbup: Luv the contrast, that makes this block work really well. Both you and Chele have worked the colourings of this way better than my first one. It's so good to see how other people work things. I can look at mine and know something's not right, but can't always pinpoint what "it" is, untill I see what some one else has done to make theirs work betta :wink:
