I received this Moda layer cake of 10" squares as a lottery gift from Margaret's Hope Chest. Now I see that another of their friends, Amanda is leading an internet workshop on 36-Patch blocks. They look really fun set right next to each other.
But I don't want to use that many pieces on my next project.. . . so I'm making 16-patch blocks from the layer cake.
It's pretty quick to make four at a time, so in 10 batches I will have used up all the fabric and have 40 blocks. That's enough to make a 48" x 48" center [6 blocks x 6 blocks] and have 4 left for cornerstones in the borders.
And not too much THINKING will be necessary. A good thing in this high heat and humidity.
