Blocks- Sewn Up!

     At the quilt retreat, I was able to sew all 40 Disappearing Hourglass Blocks (MSQC) into the final stars. Now, I have to decide whether to make one large quilt or two comfort ones with borders. Hmm. The Kaffe layer cake came from Missouri Star when there was a daily deal. Such a sucker for those Kaffe deals. 
     Also, I sewed all the OBW octagons (48). When I got home  I moved them around on the design wall over 30 times and 3 days until I settled on one arrangement. I was trying to go from lightest to darkest instead of just matching flowers. Now, I am cutting the triangles from the squares for the corners and placing them. Next post, I will show progress on that. Oh, I love the octagons.

I would go for two comfort quilts with borders rather than one big quilt. And those OBW blocks are beautiful!!

I love your final placement of the octagon blocks. It is going to be a striking quilt.

Love the Kaffe fabrics, obviously! Your OBW I think is a stunner Linda, I really love it to bits, the colour, the movement in all those different blocks. You picked a winner there girl with that fabric!
