I picked up some great coordinating fabrics from ConnectingThreads.com that were these gorgeous colours that reminded me of salt-water taffy. I wanted to do this quilt top without any sashing and vary the blocks, so some most had a white background and some had the colour and white reversed.
This was my inspiration (found on Pinterest, link is lost, but the original comment on Pinterest says it was from Cynthia Brunz's blog "Quilting is More Fun than Housework) I love how she included both large and smaller blocks!

I put them up on the design wall as they were completed and just love the way they look together! Without sashing to separate the blocks, it took a little longer, (well, a lot longer), to sew the blocks together into a top that is ready for quilting! Now I just need to piece a backing fabric and this one is off to be quilted by Marie of Blueberry Hill Quilts in Chestermere, Alberta.
