More than 4 years ago I started a dotty scraps project - read about it here.
The block pattern by Bonnie Hunter is called Carolina Chain, and was in the Quiltmaker issue in May/June 2010. Bonnie was working on her blocks during the last quiltcam, and I was reminded that I had some started too. I dug them out of storage and started cutting more pieces (I used 1.5" squares and strips).
And then I had lots of fun with the layout possibilities. I have narrowed it down to my two favorites.
I call this X's and O's. I would maybe put the X blocks in the middle and they would be surrounded by one border of the lighter colour O blocks.
This is the block layout that Bonnie is using with a light and a dark diagonal chain.
And yesterday Bonnie posted her layout idea on her blog - click here to see it.
Which of the layouts do you like better and why?
Linking up today over at Connie's...lots of projects to see over there!
