I am in the process of putting together the second quilt. I have the same fabrics in the strip sets, but I was thinking of just cutting the strip sets into 6 1/2 " blocks instead of making 9 patch blocks. The first reason, of course, is just that it would go faster. The second reason is to have to quilts that aren't quite so much alike.
Today I cut one block from each strip set and used the new design wall to see if this would work or if it looks too dark. I'm a little concerned.
Help! What do you think? Will this work or should I go back to 9 patch blocks?
