So basically, you're saying: recycle the corner blocks elsewhere because they're too big vis-a-vis the center section, and (if I'm reading correctly between the lines), use a smaller-scale set of blocks/piecing around the edges of the center block....

Yes?

Yes. The corner blocks are nice looking, colors and pattern, just too big. They are over powering. They could be pieced together for a back panel on the same quilt with borders in the colors you've selected to create a truly amazing reversible quilt.

Okay... here's the latest iteration.

I now need to decide what's going to go in the corner blocks.

THen one more border, then I'm done.

Sorry for the color drainage. One of these days, we'll have a decent camera.

Oh yeah, this is great! You work pretty quickly too. The blocks you had before were real nice, is that a pattern you can make on a smaller scale?

Thanks, olebat!

The blocks I had before were actually fussy-cut from a batik that had a "star" pattern in the pattern itself.

Don't really have anything else like it.

Jillaine, have you put a set of mirrors against that leaf border to see how it would look as a OBW? I don't think it would work for a full quilt, but for cornerstones it may work. It would follow through with the color scheme, and have the geometric accent of the ME pattern you have going on.

olebat, i'd thought of that (obw with leaf fabric) but I do not have enough of it.

Have you played with the HST's that you had on that previous border. Perhaps make a corner with opposing points?

I tried to log on earlier, these nasty storms have been playing havoc with connectivity. (Remember, I'm camping out this weekend.) I've been unable to learn anything of my caving friends in the Tennessee, Alabama, Georgia (Known as TAG) area. Our prime caving areas have been hit hard. I'm worried about our landowners, and cavers.

I'll check back tomorrow - but you may try to arrange the HST's into a star or pinwheel too. Play, have fun.
