    i found two ways to use this block in a top.
    there might be more, but i only needed one, so two was a good enough place to stop.

    these images are exported from EQ7.
    the real top is still without a border, so i'll show that sometime down the road, once it's all done.

    Marion...beautiful in all the pinks...you're fast! Will it be for one of the grandkids? I might get my block done in Jan. & then figure out how I want to put it together...I did a center for it, so will have to play with it. And the same with my mysterytrain...they will both have to wait till Jan.

    Everyone's blocks are lovely. Mfaye your layout looks good.
    Here is my Dec. block and all of my blocks laid out. I had thought I might sash but now not sure. Any ideas on these 2 layouts would be helpful. I'm thinking maybe just add a couple borders to increase to lap size

    Fun to play with the block isn't it. I usually lay blocks out and take a few day to walk by and take a look...it is too stop have photo as sometimes that is helpful in deciding also.

    Mfay, It looks like you used a small sashing, is that correct? What size is it?
    I'm thinking that might be another option for me & I have plenty of my focus fabric left but not much of the others.

    Finally!...put my blocks on the bed so that I could get photos of them.
    Like many of you, I am trying to figure out how to tie them together.
    A sashing is my first thought but what color? How wide?
    Or should I try something more creative? What would that be?

    A little late, but finally got around to putting this top together. I love it and am keeping it for myself. The colors are so soft & I love the roses. No telling when I will get around to quilting it, but the top's done!
