This is the year!
My awesome sister helped me cut out the blocks while the boys and I were up visiting in Indiana this week. She had a pattern, "Flies in the Barn", that we used. Apparently, it is a combination of the patterns, "Shoo-Fly" and "Hole in the Barn Door"...go figure.
Part of me really likes the matchy-matchy look.
Part of me really wants to go random with a little consistency.
However, I think I'll probably choose random with a little symmetry mixed in...
