I am trying to make a throw quilt for my DH's brother's 50th wedding anniversary. They are embroidery religious blocks. There is a total of 12 blocks. 6 are 6 wide x 9 high and 6 are 9 wide x 6 high. So I came up with placing them
6 x 9 (5 inch sashing) 9 x 6 (5 inch sashing) 6 x 9
(5 inch sashing>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>)
9 x 6 (5 inch sashing) 6 x 9 (5 inch sashing) 9 x 6
So the blocks will make a complete square of 33 wide by 47 long..with no borders. I was thinking.. should I add a small border, then another 5 inch border then my binding? Also what color fabric should I use. I am attaching a link with a picture of all the designs. I am not sure if the religious fabric with little brown praying hands or cross on white fabric would work for this or not.
Thanks for any and all help and suggestions I can get.
