Shoo Fly Placemat
This placemat is made using 6 Shoo Fly blocks. I want to try quilting it.
What if I try this pattern that radiates out from the center of the block, using a contrasting thread color?
I like this and I'm tempted to stop here. But I want to see what else I can come up with.
What if I try the same pattern using a matching thread color?
This is not as vibrant. There is not enough happening in the white areas.
What if I zigzag back and forth in the white squares?
This is a good start but it needs something more in the white diamonds.
What if I fill the diamonds with triangles?
Too busy. A lot of buzz and no music.
What if I fill the diamonds with diamonds?
This is vibrant and has character. I've found what I'm looking for.
