The blocks are scrappy, sometimes with no two alike, and each quilt uses the same block pattern. But in nearly all the old scrap quilts I found, the quilter used an additional unifying factor: the same fabric in the alternate blocks, in the sashing, or in the borders, and sometimes in all three.
I think Children's Garden needs a similar approach to fit in its environment. So it's back to the
I'm also going to try a layout with 6 x 7 churn dash blocks. If I choose the 5 x 7 layout (above) the inner borders on the longer sides will have to be narrower than the borders on the ends and I think it will look odd. (I know you can't tell that from the photo above. That's because the borders have taken up more space than they really have.) The 6 x 7 layout will tend toward the square size but I think the proportions will be better.
If you have thoughts, suggestions, ideas about this quilt, I'd be happy to read them. Thanks.
Happy quilting to you!
