    As you can see I've been busy making more blocks, opinions please, which do you prefer, blocks set on point or just in rows?
    I have placed the blocks on some black fabric to get an idea if black sashing will work. Any suggestions on sashing colours. I have not squared up the blocks yet. If I do three more blocks I can make this into single bed size. Thanks to all of you who gave me great advice helping me with my first scrappy.
    Thanks in advance

    I prefer the on-point setting. Adds a little excitement.

    With the black sashing, you "lose" some of the block edges that are also dark. Perhaps a light color sashing???

    I like it on point.

    I agree on both counts.

    I agree with the above. What about a dark green?

    Like the on-point---and I agree --the black is too dark....dark blue?

    Hey Gal that is going to be a lovely quilt. I like it on point too. I actually like the black but you would have to watch that any other dark colours are on the inside of the block or they will get lost against the black. But it could look just as good against another colour for the sashing.
    Good job.
