OOPS! I have 17 Oriental blocks---time for a quilt?

I had to do it.......really......I had to.  The scraps were just sitting there.....staring at me.  I had to teach them a lesson!   So I whipped them into shape! (and it took more than 15 minutes, but it got me into the quilt room for a change!)

Now I have 17 blocks and the pieces I have left are soooo tiny.  I am not sure I could coax 3 more blocks out of them.  So I guess I will have to cut up my oriental piece goods to get 3 more blocks.

Then I have to decide how to set them.  I am sooo uncreative.  Oh, brilliant flash:  I need GOLD!

Glen, with an odd number of blocks like that, try setting them on point.

Hey Speedy! How big are your blocks? Keep playing... Maybe those are the centers of something bigger...

They are 6 1/2 inch blocks. I had this dream last night about making a sashing of goldish beige and having black small lines running between the blocks in a randome fashion connecting them together.

EQ here I come!
