So, apparently three potholders was not enough to satisfy my love of these lovely cool solids together. The binding still isn't sewn on to the potholders, but rather than finish them, I decided to play some more this weekend. I made more squares like before, and then tried to decide on a layout for a lap quilt.
Decisions, decisions. Should I keep them all oriented the same way:
or rotate half the blocks 90 degrees?
While the second layout is visually interesting, it does beg the question of why I went to the trouble of cutting the squares into diamonds and sewing them back together again, when I could have just left them alone and set them on point instead. So, I'll keep that in mind for another day. The first layout won in the end. Now I have another quilt top, and some potholders that still aren't quite done...
