I did change up the pattern by making the center a different color from the outside triangles. That means six 3 1/2 inch squares of the outside color and 2 of the inside color and then four 3 inch squares of the inside color. The white colors stay the same, does this make since? I did make my squares just a tiny bigger and then squared up my HST to 3 inches when I was done. Several people recommended that on the blog hop. At first, I just cut enough for two blocks so I could play around with them and see what I liked best and how many colors were needed for what part.
quilt here, and is the one I am patterning my background fabrics after. I love the colors in his quilt! To get an idea of background fabrics be sure to check that quilt out!
There are a lot of pieces in this block and I found that I had to pay attention while sewing it together or I messed it up. I want to thank my fellow Sew Sweet Bee members for my blocks! BTW, the colors in my pictures are funky next to the color of my carpet.
