I've been playing with my diamond string blocks and can't make up my mind which layout I like best. If I do the straight set, it looks good and I have a plan for some borders. But I like the look of the stars. They have to have sashing to show the stars and the center will be square--I have enough for 9 blocks. Because of the amount of fabric I have left from the green and white (it was a border print) I'm thinking I'll use the white for the center sashing and the green for in the borders. Hmmm.
When I thought of making this quilt I was going for the green and white framed blocks. Then I put it on the wall and saw the star and now I don't know what to do. I've looked at the photos on the Quiltville page but no one has made the blocks like I have.
So I will post this and hope someone can tell me what to do. Pretty sneaky, huh??? For now, I'll leave it on the wall, I have other things to work on. Or not.
