I decided on a shift in scale. I made more Lazy 9-Patches, this time using 2.5" ish squares to make 6" ish finished blocks. I LOVE the small blocks, but they just don't show off the fun tropical prints, plus I'm using a Moda Jelly Roll of marble citrus prints (I didn't have access to my stash in Florida and that was a handy way to get fabric). Those are 2.5" strips, so they were darn easy to make into squares.
These definitely go faster than the smaller blocks but I don't like them nearly as well. Still, look at how wonderful the dragonfly looks.
I also considered throwing in some Friendship Stars. Boy, making triangles really bores me, so I doubt I'll make many of these.
