Hmm... If I cut the rows so they were thinner and the black squares so they were large then the black would be the major part of the project and would be nice spot to do FMQing! For next time. It would also be fun to arrange the colors so they go from one shade to the other - and to have the squares also change gradually too... For another time.
Or here is another possible setting - (I made the mistake of leaving this on the bed and my DH saw and really liked this checker board effect so could be I need to switch so this design is part of the quilt...) He suggested putting it in the center and having the rest be plain black.....
Here is the original idea - with different colors for the squares - and one modified to show the black squares.
|Original idea - each row is from 4.5 inch strip|
|DH decided he wanted the squares to all be black.|
In the plan they really would be the same size.
