Three things to be happy about:
(1) mint-flavored floss
(2) small quilts
I liked the color-coded bands around the bottles, and their meds were cheaper, ya know? The water tight bottles were really good for holding mouthwash for an overnight trip.
I got all twenty blocks done for the Scrap Crystals UFO, yes!
My lazy side wanted to kick in and just set the blocks side by side, as you see them here.
But no, I went to the trouble of piecing sashing strips, so I may as well use em!
I thought about using 3-1/2" squares for the cornerstones, but that was too plain. Green 4-patches might work!
I'll need 30 to go inside as cornerstones and also along the sides, top and bottom as part of the inner border.
After piecing a few 4-patches to test the design, I wasn't too crazy about the way it looked, blah!
There's already a lot of activity in the sashing what with the string piecing and all.
Besides, you can't even see the 4-patches!
It occurred to me that I could do a simple square in a square for the cornerstones, they would echo part of that star design in the middle of the block....
Here we go, I think I'll go with this option. The original designed called for a 9 patch in the cornerstone position, with blue HST's sewn onto the sashing to carry out the star pattern.
I can't see myself trying that trick with these string pieced sashings!
So my mission for today [should I choose to accept it] will be to join the sashing strips end to end and cut them to size, and to make 36 more square in a square units for the cornerstones.
I'll need to decide what to do for the outer border, you guys put your thinking caps on! Sew forth and sew on til later....
