    Have you decided on the sashing yet? Guess by now you know you have to finish at least a pillow sham, :o ) I know I am excited, waiting to see it finished.

    Where do you live Diamond? How close is close? Lunch sounds good. If you are very close, you might want to drop in some Monday and join my sit and sew.

    I looked at the pattern again and the blocks are joined together with no sashing. I think when I get it done I will put a border on it , probaly in the gold and the bind it in the hunter green. I may lay the 8 I have made out tomorrow and pos a picture of what it looks like that way. Then we can decide.

    I say keep going. It is a wonderful pattern with lots of movement, especially with the stripe you have used. This is also on my to do list. I have a set of Marti Mitchell templates to make a similar block, haven't used them yet. Someday!!! Can't wait to see pictures of multiple blocks.

    It's very pretty. An entire quilt of that block would be wonderful, with the yellowish center color fabric as a sashing around all the blocks to set them off.

    I laid out the blocks without any sashing so you could see what it would look like as is. What do you think Now?

    Ooops!
    I made a mistake. It isn't Marti Michell templates I have. They are ARDCO templates. Still plan to make them some day.

    I like the all black background. If you want the sunflowers a little further apart, try doing sashing in the same fabric as the background. Those golden flowers will really pop.

    The colors never do turn out right for me in my pictures. The background sure looks black from here but it is actually hunter green. Thanks for all the comments. I will keep sewing till I get er done. I appreciate all the good feedback you've all given. It always helps me to hear what others think and how something HITS them. You know what I mean. The first thing you think when you see something.

    I like it. It looks like a sunflower to me and would make a lovely fall lap quilt or wall hanging.
