August Block: Convergence as a starting point

I took an Ricky Tims' Convergence piecing class at the Quilt Patch too many years ago and made a large square. Gave it to my sis for her 50th with the idea that I'd use it in a quilt. She gave it back, saying she wanted a quilt like the one I'd made mom and dad, adding that it would make a great quilt for her ex-husband! Hmm... So it's sat around for numerous years and I do want to do something with it, using it as a central feature in a quilt. I think you Bee-ers can help get this show on the road with your creative ideas! This is an anything goes project. If you'd like printed instructions for the convergence piece, let me know, but really anything goes! It'd be great if the blocks were between 10 and 15 inches or so, but do whatever works. There will be one fabric that I'll identify that should fit somewhere in your block. By the way, the quilt will in fact go to my ex-brother in law and his wife, as I've already made a baby quilt for their now two-year old son. Needless to say, I haven't lost a brother-in-law, but gained more family.

Here is a flickr to see more examples of this style and a blog demo:
