Advice Please

This week I have been working on string blocks and scrappy chunks for donation quilts.  The picture below shows some of the sixty-six 5.5 inch blocks.  They are very scrappy and I want to find a way to tie them together so that they don't look like the explosion of a scrap bin.  Some of the blocks are laid out on different pieces of fabric:  Kona red, a random piece of bright white, and a tan Thimbleberries floral.  I can't make up my mind which color works best.  I am open to any suggestions about setting or colors for sashing or alternating blocks.

Thanks for taking a look.


  1. Hope you don't got so much snow like we did. ( Pic's are on my blog
    I love that first layout with the red sashing. Did you ever tryed a dark brown sashing? I believe that will look amazing too, like the red one.

  2. I like the red. Have you ever thought about combining two blocks together before sashing them? To make rectangles. Just a different look.


I am interested in what you have to say so please leave a comment.
