This began as playing with blocks to see what to do with a new collection of tiny multicolored batik blocks. I had a LOT of them because I had made so many color combinations. I decided to just start throwing them up on the wall spontaneously to see what would happen. Would any patterns appear? Would the randomness and chaos appeal to me?

This also adds an element of technical difficult in the quilt construction. To satin stitch these little blocks on the quilt, you have to turn the entire quilt all the way around under your sewing machine, for each block. It is bulky, and heavy and difficult. So, I opted for completing these units individually in windows, and then trim them and stitch each window together near the end.
