Sadly, the light was not the best and I was just using my camera phone, so the photography isn't very good.
Got the layout worked out last week, but didn't get around to making the blocks or cutting the sashing until the weekend.
In spite of my protests that I wanted a dark colour, I eventually settled on white. White sashing, white background. It's just simpler.
Virigina Star blocks
It actually got a bit tricksy here, having to re-calculate how large the pieces had to be for a finished block size of 10".
Greek Cross blocks
Unfortunately, for the Greek Cross, there is no easy way to get a finished block size of 10". As a result, the blocks are 9" finished and 9.5" unfinished. I'll just add a white border around it - it may look a little odd, but...can't really be helped.
And then this Greek Cross block turned into a Churn Dash...
I have contemplated making another Churn Dash and another Greek Cross, but that might make a few too many blocks to easily scatter about the quilt layout.
with the focus blocks
It looks pretty good, I think!
So far, the focus blocks have been mostly the one colour. It might be interesting to put two or maybe three colours into a block.
