You had a perfect name in your posting when you said "my out of control blocks". Call it "out of control".

Looking good Don. I like the second one. After reading the name of the original block I started humming "Ground Control to Major Tom".....so how about "Major Don's Space Scraps".

I like #2 the best, but if you decide to use sashing I'd make it a lot smaller, more like an accent than a sashing.

I like the second one better. It looks neat when the squares sewed together make a solid white square on point. Very nice.

I like it with no sashing, which is unusual for me because I almost always want sashing. One consideration no one else mentioned: how many more blocks will you need to make if you don't sash it? froggyintexas
