Woodpile Blocks

       I have pieced 29 Woodpile blocks (not squared up yet) and wanted to put them up on the design wall to see how they will look.  That is when I discovered that I had not read the directions carefully. (Pattern from the 1991 book, Scrap Quilts Using Fast Patch, by Anita Hallock.) To create the Barn Raising layout half of the blocks should have been pieced with the slant going the opposite direction.  I have enough sections to piece about 21 more blocks.  With them all slanting the same direction, they can create this pattern.

      I will put these aside for now and think about whether I want to piece the others slanting the opposite direction or finish them all the same.  Any suggestions?
