Catching up on 15 minutes a day.

I missed a few days (for things like housecleaning and getting ready for overnight company), so I made it up today in an hour or so.  I made 10 more of these.

Now I have a total of 67 and I'm trying to decide how to put them together.  My idea was to make some sort of row quilt (vertically) with vines and leaves in between each row, but when I laid them out I kinda liked to idea of nothing in between any of the blocks.  I'll need a total of 108 to make it as big as I want.  What do you think?  I'll have fun arranging and rearranging them in the meantime.

I have seen a similar idea in an old BHG magazine, but the applique was on the outer borders. That would be a nice way to border it and add to the size.

I love the way your blocks turned out. Very geometric and interesting. Lots of wonderful fabrics, too!

I love the set of these blocks. You can see each one and yet as a whole it is very lively.

I love it.

I love the layout as-is. No sashing is my vote.

I love the blocks too, no sashing my vote also! An 10 in an hour?! How do you do them so fast??

Keep pondering as you finish... You never know unless you audition and try many possibilities... I love this quilt so far... fabulous!

They are looking so good! I have not had 15minutes to my name until today, then I wasted it all on nothing. But it felt great!

Love them just the way they are now. Looks like buildings on a street at an angle. I have fallen behind on mine but love seeing what others are doing.

Debbie, Thanks for the idea. I think I'll add an outside border of applique. Then I can quit making these blocks and go on to making some other colors. Thanks everyone for the comments.

Oh, how I love these! No sashing is my vote, and I like how some of them are turned.
