Whee! Almost there. All blocks are made and sashing is on two sides. All setting triangles and the corners are made, waiting for layout to pre-apply the sashing to them.

So today I'm balancing out the blocks and determining final layout. I'm committed to a border design but still have a lot of seams to go.

Pretty much everything had been combined before getting to me. It turned out that the problem was in the step with the red/blue HST, 41 units were made instead of 41 sets of units. So I had to make a few more HST, turn them into pinwheels, and then those darn 3-colored goose units for all of them. Everything else was pretty much done and the extra fabric for the project provided. Since I had to make some triangles, I did "mimic" some of the extra prints and slipped in just a couple reds. I also cut all the sashing cornerstones from the same fabric which again, fit in with the other fabrics.

As I was familiarizing myself with the project and since I knew what was ahead and that we had extra units and that I would have to keep careful track of the various pairs, I decided to limit the neutral fabrics to all 8 being the same in each block. Additionally, the Geese units made with the Parakeet fabric had all been made with the same fabric -- and I had enough of the same fabric for the sashing. I was also able to pick out a matching set of (4) 4-patches, where the red/blue fabrics did not match any of the star fabrics.

I will be emphasizing the white/neutral in my border treatment, and I will be piecing various lengths of the various white/neutral for the inner border, and while I won't have to finish it myself, think that is the right choice for the binding too.
