I'm almost finished with these blocks. My goal was 30 and I have 28 sewn. I have 6 yet in progress. When I'm making a scrap quilt I always like to make a few extra blocks to trade out if some don't just quite "fit" visually.
These are made from both old and new fabric, solids, prints, stripes, plaids. Such a variety. I love mixing old and new.
Now that the blocks are almost finished I'm thinking more earnestly about the other details.
Will I or won't I
-- use an arbitrary layout?
-- organize the layout by light/dark or some other way?
-- use wide or narrow sashing?
-- make stars in the sashing?
-- set them straight or on point?
-- be overly cautious and take the safe route with sashing?
-- be bold with sashing by using stripes or a completely different color?
