Work in Progress

Well, I haven't made as much progress as I would have like to have made, but here is where we are.  I put sashings between the blocks out of a fabric that I haven't used before, but since it is blue, it works.  I love that I am able to rummage through my vintage shirts and find what I need.  This is turning out to be a very inexpensive little project so far.

I just have to decide how I want to finish this out.  I know that I will have borders around the edges, but I am not sure how many and of which fabrics.  I am currently wondering if an nice red border surrounded by pieced scrappy bits of red, tan, and blue fabrics, surrounded by another dark navy border would look.

Hmmm.  Maybe I should leave the scrappy to the binding.  I'd love it if YOU, my wonderful and glorious readers would chime in with an opinion or two.....or thirty!   I know that folks do occasionally check out my blog, so I want to know what everyone thinks would look best.

I LOVE it...I think I like the idea of a red border at this point. And I kind of like half-square triangles (one side dark, the other light) going around the edge as a final border...saw it looks like blades of a saw? Accenting the points in the star as well? The shirts are awesome and I can't wait to see how it turns out!

Thanks! I like the idea of half-square triangles, but I will have to do some math (yikes!) and see if I can do it easily.

I really, really appreciate your taking a look at this and giving me your input!
