Rough Draft

These blocks are the result of my experimenting with an idea I had. The idea wasn't fully formed, so I didn't draw the design. I call it a rough draft in case I decide to do another one and make any changes.

They started with a pile of 3 1/2" squares sitting in the scrap box that were getting old so I thought I ought to use them. So far this is what I have.   I have 6 more blocks almost done. It ought to be good for something by the time I am done with it. I can see if I did it again that three dimensional centers like the knots in the bowtie blocks would look cute on this.  Too bad I don't do cute. Very often anyways.
It's DesignWall Monday and you know what that means.

That is pretty cute for something that isn't cute...if that makes sense.

I think this is a wonderful idea. Will have to bookmark it for Spring ideas. :)

I love this. I noticed that the purple block (bottom right of photo) looks "rounder" than the others. Looking closer I see that one is spinning the other way. And that puts the point of the flower in a different spot in relation to the green strip. Hmmmmm.......
