The Red Eye Blocks

The bright colors of the bias squares next to the black of the red eyes has a very folk art look.  What is folk art?  Just art by folk.  Anyway I wanted to make this a nice throw size and I wanted it symmetrical so to make it wide enough I would have had six blocks across and eight blocks down so it would have had a bias square on  one edge  and a red eye on the other edge.  Sometimes I really like things to be symmetrical so I did half blocks for the borders. If I had really been symmetrical the side blocks would have matched across the quilt but I wanted to use the strips I had cut and not cut more. Now to sew the blocks together.  --Ann--
