The Franky top will be finished before Halloween, most likely. I can hear you gloating QuiltE.
After testing block placement I decided, with confirmation, that the additional paper-pieced blocks will detract from my main monster pal, Franky. So, surround Franky with colourful blocks and then decide on borders. Truth be told, as the blocks progressed Franky progressed into a more "fun" quilt than the pp monsters and horror movie fabric would support. So, Franky is fun all the way. With a name like Franky how could he be anything but?
Speaking of block placement, I had help this afternoon. Seems like fabric blocks slide really well on hardwood floors. Good thing I had already photographed my final layout.
