These are some ufo blocks I picked up at my quilting group. Also some fabrics I pulled out of their stash that I thought would work with them. The blocks are pretty small - maybe 7". I am supposed to make a lap size quilt out of this. What would you do? Any suggestions?

Sash them with the blue with pink cornerstones and pink setting triangles. Then and set them on point, but you'll need another block - a special pattern that coordinates with the current blocks. I'd put in the center. A 'eye stopper' narrow border of the green, and then a wider border of your choice and you're good to go.

And don't forget to post a picture when you get it done. I love those fabrics, too.

This sounds good to me and would make a lovely lap quilt.
