    Have you considered a 10 minute block using a coordinating solid color for the center diamond? That way the majority of all of the blocks would be shown. Just a thought.

    My vote is for DeNQvo as well.

    Why not just sew them together and go with the black inbetween the squares? It will be awesome! Tks. G

    It has already been suggested but I love the Double Slice Layer Cake. I made one and it works up fast. But i like the other one pictured too. Now you went from what pattern to which one to choose?

    You might use them in a strip quilt or as filler blocks between a regular block.

    10 minute block!!!!!!! No cutting if you make the it with 10" squares!!!!
    Better to do something imperfectly, than nothing perfectly.
    Done is better than perfect.

    I just made this quilt using 10" squares and it was easy and fun, and looks great. You might like it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jxC-0T5lXw4

    I love, love, love the pieces, specially the ribbon pieces. I'd find a layout that used the squares just like they are--------all 10" of each! Black would be a good solid to match

    I know there have bee a lot of "don't cut them" posts --- but the first thing i thought of was kaleidescope! i think these would be great for that kind of dresden plate effect.

    I was just reading an older copy of American Patchwork and Quilting last night and I saw a quilt I loved. Your fabric would work with it. Here is the link to show the quilt..it's called Thick and Thin. If you really like it, PM me and I'll make a copy from the magazine and mail it to you. http://www.allpeoplequilt.com/magazi...-2011_ss7.html

    This is what I would do. The squares are so striking, I'd hate to cut them at all.

    I followed the link and could not find the pattern.

    Put a one inch strip of some color in each layer cake around each layer cake, sash them all with black and you'll have a spectacular. froggyintexas

    Paula Nadelstern designs her fabric with her signature kaleidoscope quilt style in mind.
    Many have made OBW's using it.
    I made a large kaleidoscope quilt from her Luminosity collection.

    But you need multiple repeats with the same portion of the fabric design to make the kaleidoscope.

    All the OP has are 10" blocks - and only 2 of each pattern - and who knows if they're identical cuts.

    So if there was enough fabric, then absolutely cut the pattern up into smaller pieces because you can create something larger that's beautiful from those smaller pieces.

    But, sadly, there isn't.

    I would use them with a solid black between in a Twister pattern! Every piece of fabric would be showcased against the black and look FABULOUS!!! You hit the jackpot with these fabrics!!!

    It could be fun with those fabrics or you could add a solid in with them.
    I was going to suggest this also. I think it would be great with those fabrics.
