this is what became of the blocks from this post, i didn't fudge them together at all, no, these were planned within an inch of their lives...i didn't just keep adding pieces of fabric as i went and hope for the best, no siree bob.*
then i wondered what they'd look like as a larger piece (this is around 60cm square) so played about in picnik for a few minutes. it's interesting how the black and white blocks become the dominant ones...or is it because they're both the same (weave) fabric design? possibly.
*yes, that's exactly how i made them
