I assumed the task of putting it all together since I only made one block. The pieced patterns were chosen randomly, so I ignored pattern completely, and concentrated on giving the colors a pleasing balance.
I wanted to use up the leftover puzzle fabric, but I thought a visual break was needed between the blocks and the border. Nothing stops the eye like red, so a bright red inner border was born.
There's my lone card trick block in the bottom row - took forever! Others liked this particular paper-piecing method, but I was not a fan. It did, however, give nice results.
Everyone did a terrific job on their blocks, and I don't think we've ever created a more colorful quilt!
Some little kid is going to really love this bright, cheery quilt!
