Remember these blocks?

NIne Patch Persimmon

I ran out of the Kona Snow I am using for the background, so I set them aside until my fabric order arrived. The fabric arrived weeks ago, but I am just now getting to work on them again. This is going to be one of those projects I work on in between other commitments.

This is how it looks on the design wall right now:

Basic Grey Persimmon Shoo Fly and Nine Patch Blocks

And here is my dilemma. The blocks will finish at 10″, which makes the size of this quilt 50″ x 60″. I would like for it to be a bit bigger to make a nice lap quilt. I used a jelly roll and charm pack that I’ve had for a while and I don’t have enough of those pieces left to make more blocks.

I’m thinking sashing between the blocks and rows. Maybe with cornerstones to continue the X pattern. What do you think? Should the cornerstones be one solid color that works with the prints? Or pieces from the leftover jelly roll strips which would make all of them a different print? Or no cornerstones at all? Or no sashing and just live with the size? Ah, decisions, decisions….

I decided to walk away from it for the evening and come back to it tomorrow. Let the whole thing percolate in my head for a while. I think it’s time for some chocolate.

Linking up with Freshly Pieced, Let’s Bee Social, and Needle & Thread Thursday. Come visit these parties – they are full of inspiration!
