single slash blocks

Hi everyone!  I haven't had much time in the sewing room, but have managed to make a few scrappy blocks, with this delightful in-your-face pink slash...

Made a few more, one with a purple slash and one regular scrap block just because...

I like this configuration the best, now have to decide if I want a series of four blocks with the 'spokes' all spinning in the same direction, or have them spinning in different directions...or do I make different size blocks and change the colours of the slash...decisions, decisions...
 Cheers,
Mary

Love the look of these blocks. I like the spoke thing too. When you get tons more blocks which I know you will, hahaha, you can play around with it.

I like the slashes, too! I kinda like that "all direction" thing going on.

The spinnning effect is great...may have to try that one! Thanks, Mary-Frances

What a fun idea to have the slashes as spinning spokes.
