Need a recipe for Chili Pot

Oh don't you love it when the doing goes beyond planning and then turn around and bites you? I've made a bunch of these blocks (randomly placed) 

and then decided I like them better in the next layout (also randomly placed).

The problem is I'd like to fill those 2 inch holes with something dark, but have no idea how to sew it together without a whole mess of partial seams. If I started out with making a pattern with wide and narrow rows, it would have worked, but that would remove the ability to do much rearranging.

Sigh. Does anyone have a recipe to make this change? Or maybe the first design looks better anyway? All comments and opinions appreciated.

Usually there is no spam on this blog. Sorry for letting the last one slip by for a day or two. I am not promoting what the comment was promoting!

Oh my, with those 2 inch holes. Fons and POrter made a baby quilt one time with little holes, just like yours and I got so confused, I actually turned OFF the TV, so ... I wish you good luck with that plan. If I were you (!!!) i'd turn them all vertically and set them in columns, each column offsetting by half a block. Good luck - I'mm check back to see what you decide. They ARE clean and interesting even without putting in the black holes. 8-))

Thanks. I decided the same thing - the holes are too stressful and this is supposed to be a break from working on Scott's king-size. Will it ever be finished??!!

Ok, I see that you have found an alternative but I had a thought. In order to avoid the "holes" you would partially piece the blocks, creating a row, like sashing, that would fill in the holes and complete the blocks.

Does that make sense?

Love the colors.
