In another thread I talked a little bit about the mini quilt I'm making. This is my inspiration photo though I am straying a bit from it.

This what I've come up with so far. Instead of the blank, on point squares I'm thinking 4" square-in-a-square blocks with 4 patches. Nothing has been sewn yet so I can change my mind about any of it.
S5030413.jpg  Maybe a narrow solid paprika colored sashing between the blocks? Or use the paprika in the border? I also have another, lighter turquoise print I can use for a border or binding. I don't know yet. It's a work in progress.

just playing around with my iPad editor and your choice colors..... hope you are doing well and staying safe. I picked up my Davis VF on Sat and have been cleaning all itโ€™s attachments, so that I can use it for quilt binding. ๐Ÿ˜œ1730B3E2-A096-49C5-A8E8-DFAAC73F82CB.jpeg

Oh cool! Could you do that with a dark, like a barn red? That's the color I have called paprika.

Cari

Have fun with your Davis!

I've sewn my blocks and now am stumped. Should I sash them or not? Sashing and solid border? Sashing and different border? Should I make a border like the inspiration photo? I'm all muddled, don't know where to go from here.

That's going to be a great mini quilt!  I'd sash & do first (skinny) border with the paprika color and do a wider border with the turquoise.  I bind most of my quilts with black...

That's a good idea and I may use it with the first mistake blocks I made. The problem is that for the swap quilt I can't go over 18" square.

I have a plan though, it just now came to me. It'll either turn out great or I'll be doing a lot of ripping. Luckily I have enough time before the deadline lol.

Update - I decided what to do with the mini quilt and while *I* like it, I wasn't really satisfied with how it turned out. Not to mention I wouldn't be surprised if nobody else likes it lol.

So I was turning it every which way, just looking at it when I had a "I wonder what would happen if I............................................" moment. Started cutting fabric again and it seemed to take on a life of its own. This one practically made itself, though it is a little bigger than it was supposed to be.

It's quilted now, I did a quickie SITD all over it. I'll do the binding and wash it tomorrow so it can go in the mail Monday.
