Summery Slashed Squares

This small quilt of summery colors is for a friend of mine. This quilt is going into a neutral colored room that faces North. The color in the room is provided by colorful paintings that hang on the walls. I wanted this quilt to be more reminiscent of summer colors as well as represent my friend's favorites.

The squares are 14" finished, so this quilt will be42" x 56" or so. There are 24 different fabrics in this quilt. Here they are, in the square in square blocks before I cut them apart and resewed them.
I've blogged about how to do these "Slashed Squares" here. This is the same pattern I used for my son's Sunshine Quilt.

So how did you cut them apart. Not exactly in half? I very much like the finished look.
