The blocks are framed with varying widths of a subtle light stripe (2 3/4, 1 1/2, 3, 4 inches ). It's liberating to ignore rules that we have always sewn with!! The seams are pressed open.
The five blocks are placed on the design wall with a darker background fabric. This background is cut so that each block can be shifted for the final placement. The photo shows the strips arranged vertically.
We decided to add sashing between the blocks to distribute the darker background within the lighter areas. This was a 3 inch cut to provide unity.
The finished project will be revealed in a future post. We're off to Minneapolis Quilt Market! Yipee Skipee!!!
