And sashing with cornerstones to give each block its own frame.
And pieced setting triangles just like the blocks, only a diagonal half. You can see what I hope to make on the upper right and left sides between the first and second rows; one half-block at the top; and on the upper corners.
Math is not my strength. The math for pieced setting triangles without sashing isn't too difficult, but with sashing -- I don't know. I understand that sashing changes the measurements for the setting triangles. It's not that I can't calculate, it's more that I'm not sure which parts of the block need to measure differently than they do now. I thank (but I'm not sure) that I extend only the pieces that will lay along the edge of the quilt so they extend further than if I were to cut a finished block in half. I don't want to waste the time cutting, sewing, and trying out setting triangle sizes, but then I don't want to have them be the wrong size, either.
I searched google images for sashed pieced setting triangles and found not one with a pieced setting triangle. I suppose there's a reason for that. Maybe it's not possible to piece a setting triangle to use with sashing and have it look right in a quilt.
We may see this quilt with chopped off points, or plain setting triangles, but I hope not. Have you drafted your own setting triangles when using sashing? Do you have any hints for me?
I think the sashing may be either a dark blue (with a hint of green -- what is that shade of blue called, anyway?) or dark brown. I have several fabrics to try and then I'll have an idea what the blocks want.
Exciting news for me: a new grand-baby-boy is due in January! I need to get working on a quilt for the little guy. Decisions, decisions: blocks, patterns, colors, layouts. What fun!

Thank you, ladies, for arranging and hosting the link parties.
Also, I'm still working on an inspiration link party. I hoped to be ready by this Sunday but we'll see.
Thanks for stopping by.
