I production lined the making of the blocks, and then laid them out on my table to try and decide on a layout.
Of course, I should have remembered that I generally prefer an odd number of rows and columns if I'm using alternate colours for blocks. I still wanted to use all the blocks, so cut the extras in half (one of them in quarters) and made a border from them.
I have even managed to start quilting. I've started with freehand feathers out to each corner from the middle, but the rest of it will be tight stippling.
But what of the decisions? Most of them (for example the layout) have been made. Well, I'm trying to decide whether to leave this as a quilt, or whether to turn it into a quillow. A quilt means a faster finish, a quillow might mean that it is better used / more useful for the intended recipient. Hmmmm. Time for more pondering whilst I do a little more meditative quilting!
