    Here are my first 50 in both the 3" and 4".(actually a couple of extra for the mistake ones) added them anyways.
    On the 3 " ones please let me know which you like for possible sashings? I'm starting to wonder on both the 3" and 4" either going with like a tye dyed muslin (for sashing)I just can't decide. Maybe Black? eekkkkkk.....I don't know......White?
    The 4" one I still think the blocks are way to dark so the next 25 blocks will do a lot of white background.(Maybe I will like it then)

    I do have closer up pictures of the different colored sashings if that will help.Wasn't sure whether I should add them here or not.

    Here is my first 50. I don't have them in any order, just put them up. I'm thinging of light beige strips and deep purple cornerstones. I'll probably wait until all are done before I decide.

    Judy, I really like your also. I don't think I really could do all 3 & 4 in blocks. Yours are really beautiful. Thank's for your compliments.

    GrannyQ and JAGSD, your 50 are stunning, sensational and stricking! I've only finished 32, but seeing your lovely, lively and lucious 50, I know I'll forge ahead! Good job ladies. Belles

    JAGSD, thanks for showing your collections. They're beautiful! For the 30s sashing options you've shown, I think the blue sets off the blocks better than the other colors.

    grannyQ, it's not always easy to pull off a monotone quilt. Yours is spectacular! Great job balancing values. Thanks for sharing!

    OMG I'm on the floor!! You guys have knocked me out LOL!! Those are beautiful-I can't believe how nice they look. I love the purple tones-gorgeous. And the scrappies are fantastic. I can't decide which sashing I like-each one gives a different interpretation to the blocks. Wow!! I am so impressed and excited to see these. You are so inspriational!!

    I think the blue fabric makes the blocks "pop"! Love it!

    Hi, The blue gives the blocks more definition while the peachy coral makes the blocks blend into each other. I like the blue better. GrannyQ--I'm speechless !! Your Quilt would win the grand prize--Best in show!! Blue Ribbons all around.

    I prefer the peach but I get why others like the blue. I've just never been a fan of it.

    Cool blocks, everyone!

    I won't get around to this for a while. I'm playing nursemaid to a person and a dog. I also put my cutting table in front of my design wall making the wall difficult to reach. Just call me Einstein.

    Wow! Beautiful! What about pale yellow sashing? I see though, it looks like you have some sashing up there already... I wonder if you gradiate the shades from light to dark, starting in the upper left hand corner, going down to the lower right, getting darker? At any rate, your blocks collection is gorgeous!!!

    No particular order, just putting them up to keep looking at them as we progress thru the rest...

    Looking at auntjo's, I see that a block I chose not to make looks wonderful. This thread is educational. Thanks!

    Here are my first 50, sob sob I don't have a design wall so they are laid out on the floor. I can't decide on what colour sashing, maybe I need to rehearse a couple of different colour ways.
    Hope you like them.
    It is amazing how different everyones blocks look :thumbup:

    Mirabelle I love your blocks-nice mix of colors. Pookie is right-this site has taught me so much, esp about scrappy. Great job!

    AMAZING!!! Ladies, I'm speechless! Absolutely gorgeous layouts. Good for you; I need a thesaurus, but I am in awe.

    Jagsd, Awww, your blocks are wonderful. Both sets look so cohesive and are a knock-out.
    I think I'd go with the med blue background then maybe a darker cornerstone.
    Your scrappy doesn't look dark to me; it looks balanced. I think that maybe a rich, chocolate brown sashing? Look at Laurie's sashing on her quilt.

    Granny Q, each week I fall in love all over with your purple blocks, but wow! as a group... You are a master, the way you can pull tones and shades together is amazing.

    Aunt Jo, gorgeous! Each block are all so different, yet when they're laid out they harmonize so nicely!

    Mirabelle...you and me without design walls. Let's have a pity party :lol: Waaahhh! Your colors flow so nicely...what a lovely job. Where's that darn thesaurus? You have done a wonderful job with your blocks.

    Oh how beautiful Mirabelle! This group really helped me choose the sashing and cornerstones. Just lay some out and snap a couple photos! I'm making a lap quilt out of the first 55. Then I am switching fabric to make another lap quilt out of the rest for our motorhome.
