I'm enjoying all the discussion for alternative sashing so have been playing around with some of the suggestions. Iceblossom I agree that the black can really cause the blocks to pop. What do you ladies think? Totally white sash, green, black or as Bonnie's original design? I still have many blocks to sew together and haven't decided whether I will put them horizontal or on point, but it certainly is fun to play with ideas.

Carol, first of all your blocks are beautiful! You can't go wrong with any choice for sashing.
I love how black makes blocks pop but for some reason I don't like using it. My eyes are fine-
it may be because I'm so used to having furry cats lol

Carol, I love your blocks and of the optional layouts, I am really drawn to the one with the green. I might look into that but don't really think I have enough greens left to do it. Otherwise, I will go with the original sashing using scrappy neutrals.
I have 8 of my blocks sewn and am taking a break to rest my back and shoulders. It's fiddly and my muscles get tense and cramp up. Love spending time with my heating pads. LOL

CarolinWi, it really tones down the blocks but I think I like the solid piece of sashing best! My problem would be the leftover sashing subunits from Part 2, but those are easy enough to add into a border/piecing strip for the back or another project.

So many final decisions for each of us to make!

Today at Tuesday group I got the first set of pinning done on those border units and did indeed use up most of pins. No switching of projects or portions of projects until I get those sewn. No guarantees on pressing them today though...

Project was well received, most people claim not to understand my unhappiness with my yellows/parakeet but accept that I have an issue. We all know by now that I have many issues. But I also have several takers for the project if it does indeed end up on my donation stack.

I have followed Bonnie's mysteries for years and have made 2. Where are the pictures of the quilts this year? I always enjoy the progress with each clue. Sure missed seeing it this year.

I think the issue is that not many of us have finished quilts to show as yet. I know I am still putting together the blocks, then I have to work with the sashings. Bear with us, lol, we will have quilts to show eventually!

In my case it's because I'm still assembling the blocks. I've had some trouble with it and am getting a better handle on it.
It was kind of daunting for me but things are going better now.

Default Frolic progress

I am getting there slowly but surely. I may have to redo a few blocks that don't have enough contrast.
I truly enjoy seeing everyone's progress and how beautiful the blocks are.

Tweety, I love your blocks and even tho some are more and less contrasted, I think it adds texture to your layout.
I am not allowing myself to get too excited about getting to the end of this quilt. I don't want to get carried away and overdo. My body will suffer if I do that. I set limits on what I can do each day, and take lots of resting breaks for heating pad and fluids. I don't bring drinks in my sewing room, so have to be mindful when I am not in there.
