I saw a quilt recently on pintrest that used a 16 patch. I really liked it and remembered that Sarah had a series on 16 patches not to long ago.
One method used layer cake squares. You can find the tutorial here. I'm looking for the right layer cake to try this out.here. I'm using this method right now.
I had a fat eighth pack of black, white, red and gray I thought would work nicely. And since I've empty two project boxes recently with the finish of my Scrappy Bear Paws and Wonky Rose Garden. I felt pretty justified in starting a new project.
