    Thanks Ladies!

    Those sashing strips are not attached, just laid in place for the photo op.
    The blocks that I had done before I stalled out do have sashings and cornerstones on two sides already. So when I go to join the blocks, that tedious job is out of the way. Blue for sashings and the red for cornerstones. I love the two, as while they are colour ... they seem to disappear in between the blocks, while creating that boundary. At least that's what I see on the design wall and hope after it's all together I think the same.

    Although I am starting to wonder if the blue/red are right for the rusts/browns such as the Good Cheer block above?

    DublB ... come on back and join me! Don't wait til next month .. and with that new machine you're really ready to roll!

    Oh Wow QuiltE, beautiful blocks!
    A balanced quilter is one with a project on each finger
    Eat, quilt, sleep, repeat


    Nobody is completely useless, you can always serve as a bad example

    I think you are seeing too much red in your above picture and it's throwing you off. That little square isn't as overpowering as it looks and will blend in with the rest of the quilt.

    And if you fussy cut the squares so more of the darker red (or black) is near those rusts it may tone it down as well.

    Thanks everyone!

    OKSGlad ... thanks for the feedback as you always have such a good eye! Yes, I can "see" what you mean, that the red is distorting the look. Will take that red off my mini design wall when I do my photos and stick with the black that's on it. I have all my blocks on the big design wall and last night was looking at it and definitely need more reds in there. Unfortunately, at this late stage I may have a hard time getting that accomplished. And no, not going out to buy more fabrics! I foresee many more quilts from the leftovers as my enthusiasm kind of got carried away!

    Looks GREAT, QuiltE. I love red as you might remember. I did all my blocks with a TOT red sashing. My little quilt is at the longarmers now, but she is ill and her machine is on the blink, so now sure when I'm going to get it back.....I asked for just large meanders as I like softer finish on quilts and the heavier quilting makes them too stiff for my liking. Glad to see you finishing you blocks up into a quilt. I was very pleasantly pleased with the way my blocks look all put together even though I only did 44.......

    Thanks WendiQ ... Oh how disappointing to have to wait longer to get your PC back from the LAQ. I loved your reds. Mine is going to be a Miniature Pony too! I'm thinking likely 7x7 blocks. I decided that I just really didn't want or need another really big quilt, being that I only have a double bed and decided to downsize. That being said, when I was getting on a roll last night, I started to have the guilt trip of copping out. I don't think that will weigh too long in my brain though! And who knows? maybe there'll be another Mini Pony to come with the remaining blocks I dont do this time out!

    QuiltE...it's not copping out when enough is enough when it comes to big quilts.
