What I’m Working On…

Kelli and I had leftovers from a one of the deadline projects we had last month and I’ve been playing with them.  So far, these are a few of the blocks I have.

I’m not sure what I am going to do with them next.  I love the busy backgrounds and honestly, they look better in person than they do in the picture..much brighter and fun.

Do I sew them together as is…do I add some sashing?  to do, to do??  I’m not even sure how many blocks I have.  I just know that there’s a stack.

So readers…how about some advice.  What should I do with the blocks now?  Just in case you’re wondering, this is a Moda fabric line, Scrumptious, by Bonnie and Camille.  I have LOVED working it.  The colors are so fun.

    I love the squares. I would stitch them together and make a quilt for a baby. I would only add sashing and borders if the quilt needed to be bigger.

    Looks like the beginning of a girl’s quilt – light color sashing for a little girl or dark sashing for a teenager.

    Definitely use sashing – I’ve done a quilt with this block and meeting the seams is a bear – way too much fabric there at the points. Must be a Cathy/Kathy thing because I agree with her light sashing for a younger girl and darker sashing for a teenager. Any way you choose is going to be great!

    It kind of depends on how much more work you want to put into this project. An easy way to finish it would be simply sash the blocks with white. It would calm down the busy backgrounds and make the colors stand out. This looks like a moda line and typically their “white” is a soft white so I would use that. It would make the quilt look fresh and modern.

    Oh my! Those are so cute! There are so many ways you could go with these. I would either sash or set with alternate blocks because I agree with Cathy K. – trying to match those points would be difficult and bulky. Whatever you decide, it’s going to be lovely once it’s finished!

    I like the idea of bright white sashing too. But maybe to drive you crazy and make it more modern looking, and possibly extend the size of the quilt you could use the bright white as a block or two or three. Maybe the sashing should be uneven sizes… not sure how it would turn out but it could be cute.

    I would sash them too without any corner stones. I would use a solid wild purple color. Or you could send them to me and I would play around with them if you didn’t have time, LOL!!!!

    What yummy blocks!
    Are they 6″? 9″? For an easy setting, try on-point alternating with squares of the print fabrics. For something more adventurous, use the same fabrics to make the same blocks in smaller and larger sizes. Fit them together randomly.

    I love your blocks! If they were mine I’d try out different ideas on my design wall, taking photos as I go so I’d remember what things I’ve tried. Try different fabrics for sashing, try an on point set with and without sashing, etc. You’ll figure it out!

    I love Churn Dash blocks on-point. That reminds me I have 18 of them to put together. Have fun with choosing a calm fabric to set them with, then the blocks will stand out more.

    i’m with the white sashing group! And yes, add some printed squares into the mix along with the wrench blocks to spice things up a bit.

    These blocks sure are pretty. I vote no on the sashing because I really like the shapes that you get where the blocks touch, but really it’s going to be beautiful either way!

    Scrumptious! How about scrappy frames around each block. Making sure that it doesn’t match the background of that block. Or three strip sashing with 9 patch corner stones. You really can’t go wrong with such cute blocks!
