Now why didn't I think of this? Take your 2 1/2" wide strips and make a block that is 1/2 black and white, and the other half focuses on a color. Make 4, and end up with a diamond shape in the middle. What fun! The backing of this is a dark print with multi colored circles on it, so I ended up quilting it with white thread because white goes with everything, and then the Vanilla Cream panto.
