"Mystery Block"

One of the fun things about making quilt canes is seeing how they turn out when reduced, cut apart, and recombined (lather, rinse repeat).  Secondary patterns can come into play and colors can affect the total look of the quilt.  Observe:

The purple tends to dominate the block, but the orange is still strong enough to make itself known.  The orange corners come together and make a secondary pattern.  I like the way it turned out....
