& Shoo Fly
What if I cut these two blocks into quarters and the use pieces of each to make two new blocks?
What if I place 2 Flying Shuttle pieces on the left and 2 Shoo Fly pieces on the right to make a mixed block?
What if I make a larger blocks from 4 of my mixed blocks by rotating the mixed block?
What if I put different corners of the mixed block in center of the larger block?
What if I place Shoo Fly pieces in the top left and bottom right corners and fill in the other 2 corners with Flying Shuttle pieces to make a mixed block?
What if I make larger blocks again?
What if I repeat the last mixed block but with the Shoo Fly pieces facing out instead of in?
My impression of the 9 larger blocks is that they are very busy.
What if I use all of them in a quilt and separate them with sashing?
They are still to busy.
What if I start over and replace the black in the Flying Shuttle blocks with a grey?
I like these blocks better. They are less busy, which means less confusing, so they are more readable and make a stronger statement.
What if I make a quilt by repeating one of the green blocks and one of the red blocks
I like this but I feel there's too much competition between the red and green blocks, so I want to try one more thing.
What if I tone down the red blocks?
I like this better.These are not really my colors but the quilt works. Maybe I can play with the colors some other day. But I'm done for now.
