I have been busy (with my benign fabrics). Me and my little helpers have finished all the blocks for my 15-minute scrappy top.
But now I am stuck. I need to figure out how to set them. I did some practice layouts (please ignore the warped perspective of the pictures, I had to lay out the blocks on the floor since I don't have a design wall anymore.)
I could do them in horizontal rows by color:
or I could do diagonal rows:
Or I could just lay them out randomly.
I have a clear favorite, but was looking for some feedback.
ALSO any opinions on how I could set them using nothing but scraps? I was thinking of making fabric to make scrappy sashing.. like this:
(Ironic that she used hearts on white as well.)
Should I stick with just a single color (I would use blue since that is the color I have the greatest number of scraps)? I am not really sure how I would incorporate multiple colors of sashing.
I am just stuck creatively. I was also pondering cutting the blocks down and then setting them with alternating squares of scrappy fabric, but I'm having trouble picturing if I would like that or if it would be too busy.
Any thoughts? Thanks ya'all.
