The second set of blocks for this quilt, based on what Ricky Tims calls "Convergence," will take some thinking. I want to do something different than the first, but not too weird.
I started with the background for the checkerboard blocks as a large 4-patch. The fabrics used for this
In the Beginning fabrics and Floral Carpet by P & B Textiles. The sunflower fabric is a Hoffman batik and the yellow is something pulled from my scraps.
I layered the 4-patch and the checkerboard blocks and decided to cut them at equal widths. I decided a 3"strip was sensible without getting too small, but small enough to allow the pattern to show through the checks. Then I laid them all out and took a peek.
I'll let you know what I decide.
