Three "little" Blocks

The blocks for the quilt I am making will be 18" square.  There will be 4" sashings.  This is a large scale design.  I think it is going to be nice and bold. 
I got three of the blocks completed.  I took a picture -using my every handy design floor to lay them out on.  The block closest to me washed out in the flash so I cropped that part off.  So you get to see two of the blocks. 
The green looks truer in the top block. Interestingly, the purple/red fabric looks much more red than purple. This is slightly changing my color scheme, but I think it will still work out.  I may have to rearrange the sashing plan. 

You will notice that one block has a four patch center and one has a plain center. These are currently planned to alternate in the final quilt. Ha! I am keeping my fingers crossed that it comes out right.

Looks great Gene, and I love that you are lucky enough to have enough floor space left to use it as a design floor! Mine is more of a it's flaw is that the floorplan isn't big enough for all my 'stash' lol Looking forward to seeing the completed quilt. Hugs Naomi
