Hi again everyone - just been trying out another arrangement and I really like the blocks set this way rather than in the square format. So two photos, one with just the four blocks and then another with a piece of the subway fabric just pinned to see what it looks like. This fabric I had intended to surround the blocks no matter what arrangement. I tried them in a horizontal line but that did nothing for me at all and I am more than happy with this one. The "blooms" are 7" square.
After borders it will not end up looking so long and skinny.
I haven't got them quite straight in the line-up, intending to get a hold of some of the grey gridded fabric which is on the market now instead of my old flannel!
