I took it as a suggestion anyways when Nann at With Strings Attached said that she was imagining these blocks offset. So I had to try it and while I was at it, I thought I'd throw some fabric up on the wall of something that might work for a border.
Annie' Quilt Orts commented that she didn't have many batiks in her stash to make this. I'd say that's a good excuse to go buy some more. But then, I hardly used any batiks myself. Not everyone loves them. Sew, use what you like. But her comment did suggest to me to dig into my batiks and find a few more to use. It also reminded me that for over a year now I have been wanting to mix my batiks in with the rest of the stash so I won't forget them again. Now those blocks are cut out and almost all sewed up. I will keep the border fabric up on the wall with the blocks to see how I like it tomorrow in daylight. I rarely choose a border in the evening. IS tonight the night that I move those batiks???
Thank you Ladies.
