Playing with Blocks

Shoo Fly  

What if I start with this blue and white Shoo Fly variation?

What can I do with it?

What if I take 4 Shoo Fly blocks, rotate them and then combine them to make this larger block?

This is interesting.

What if I take 4 of the larger blocks and repeat them?

I like this it's simple but it has some variation. I suspect it can be made even better with some creative quilting.

What if I add an additional blue to the Shoo Fly block?

This is nice but, at this particular moment in the life of the universe, I like the first version better.  I find it to be more delicate than this, although this is in no way heavy, clunky or indelicate.
