    Here are some of the blocks for my granddaughters quilt. The flash makes them look wierd. But is is just 3 different fabrics. I have no idea how I will put this together, I should have stuck with one block style I think.

    Anyone have any ideas for me, maybe using an offwhite for the sashing? This one is not one of my favorites so far.
