So, my sister and I sewed blocks all day, and by evening the family was gathered around, looking at the different layouts. Some of them were truly enjoying the process, my artistic neice in particular--she was flipping blocks and arranging. Some of them just wanted us to pick one so we'd clear the area in front of the TV and they could watch a show, LOL.
The pattern allows for making 64 blocks (an 8x8 layout) or 42 blocks (6x7 layout). We had 42 blocks. Some of the layouts would be better square.
Sometimes you had to get in there fast with the camera, before the layout changed again! It was like a screensaver, in constant motion.
