First: the blocks after I had used up most of the scraps from the red/yellow/orange/brown tub of scraps. They ended up somewhere between 7" and 8.5". As they were all different sizes, I decided to cut them down to a uniform size.
I did this by using my 6.5" square ruler, and putting the ruler on the blocks at an angle. I forgot to take a photo of this step so used the ruler with a square of fabric so I could show what I meant. As the blocks were different sizes, the angle I could place the ruler (and still have all of it on the block) was different for each one too.
Nola suggested that the blocks needed a colour from the opposite side of the colour wheel, and I agreed so put a 1" border around each block.
Next decision was what colour to use for sashing. I tried several but this light one looked best.
What do you think? I'm hoping to finish it at the weekend, and get it loaded on the longarm to quilt next week.
