    I love that !! Just trying to find the blocks would be a challenge. Did you just start by chopping blocks certain sizes and then placing them or was there a real plan? Now, am I being too personal? :oops: :lol:

    Those bright colors just do the trick.

    nope. that question isn't at all too personal.

    sometime ago, there was a lot of buzz here at the board about a certain very popular commercial pattern. it's just three very simple blocks made from squares and rectangles. frankly, i didn't think it was worth the going price, so i decided to see what i could come up with. i just started dividing a block space into squares and rectangles. i don't know how many i could have "made" had i kept going, but i stopped at 21. the Neon Surprise doesn't use all 21. 18, if i remember correctly.

    i offer it for sale. the price depends on whether the buyer wants it by email, on CD, or already printed. not that i wouldn't rather get paid, but i doubt i'd get cranky if somebody disected it themselves and made their own pattern. it's more or less mile-an-hour blocks that were thought out ahead of time instead of assembled randomly.

    Don't you just love it when a plan comes together. It looks awsome.

    OR you could use up your scrap bag. or do both.

    the pattern has 20 different blocks. no specific layout. 17 of the blocks take on 4 different "personalities" as you rotate them. 2 of them have 2 different looks. only 1 looks the same no matter what. if you mirror the block patterns, you nearly double the number of possibilities. effective result is somewhere in the neighborhood of 150 "different blocks". I'd have to track down an algebra text bood to calculate the number of layout combinations but we're easily talking hundreds.

    sorry to go on like that. i'm just a little proud of it. can you tell? LOL

    and thanks, all, for the compliments. it's scary, sometimes, to post our work isn't it? i want to give this to a friend. now i know she'll really like it and not just "politely" like it. :-)
    Holy cow Patrice. What a great quilt!! Trust me, there is no way your friend will be "politely" about this. Her enthusiasm will be genuine. I love your exhuberance for your quilt. You should teach a class on this. :D
