re-piecing the past

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I was really impressed with Kaye's sashing suggestions, but didn't like them when applied to my blocks. I simplified them to a simple two inch grid of mostly plain blocks. There are lots of half square triangles in grey and blue to represent the soldiers, a few pinwheels to represent conflict (with a little red close by), and two friendship stars. I couldn't find fabric that didn't die in the border, so I used one inch piano keys instead. Am still wondering how to quilt it, but I know that there will be vertical paths for sure. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Follow Kaye's advice. I loved her no press until done method, but did resort to pins at intersections.

Wow! Full of color. I really like all the colors.
a.casey223973 answered:
Thanks! I started off with the intention of using mostly florals, but then found I liked some of the tone on tones to make the blocks a little less busy.
