Slice and Rearrange!

I took one look at those blasted nine patch blocks on my design wall this morning and realized I was going nowhere fast with this piece.  So I did what every self respecting quilter should do.  I pulled all the blocks off the wall and sliced them up!

I cut them all in half the same way, with a diagonal cut.  Not all the blocks were nine patches; some were strip pieced, or whatever, but I cut them all exactly the same way.

So now I had a big pile of mixed up, cut up blocks.
So I went to work putting them back on the wall, all mixed up.  I didn't put any thought into how they went up except for trying to spread the orange around a bit.

I like it so much better now!  Click on the image if you want to see a close-up.  This is much more free, much less contrived.  And that suits me just fine.
