    As you can see I've been busy making more blocks, opinions please, which do you prefer, blocks set on point or just in rows?
    I have placed the blocks on some black fabric to get an idea if black sashing will work. Any suggestions on sashing colours. I have not squared up the blocks yet. If I do three more blocks I can make this into single bed size. Thanks to all of you who gave me great advice helping me with my first scrappy.
    Thanks in advance

    I prefer the on-point setting. Adds a little excitement.

    With the black sashing, you "lose" some of the block edges that are also dark. Perhaps a light color sashing???

    I like it on point.

    I agree on both counts.

    I agree with the above. What about a dark green?

    Like the on-point---and I agree --the black is too dark....dark blue?
