Scrappy Units Finished

Scrappy Units for Echoes - Cathy's Southwest

Now that I've used up most of the smaller scraps from Cathy's Southwest, I'm going to call the scrappy units done. I have larger pieces of fabric left, and I may do big plain squares or multi-color four-patch for the remaining 22 centers.
Placement plan for scrappy blocks

I used a Random Teams Generator to plan the placement for the scrappy blocks, called Pieced Blocks in the chart. Person x represents the simpler center blocks. Each "team" represents a horizontal row. Once I have the rest of the centers made, I'll try the layout on the design wall, with the option to move things around a bit.

If I choose to make plain one-fabric centers, I'm thinking of using one color per row. I think the uniformity interrupted by scrappy blocks will be striking. We'll see when we get there.
