What have I been saying about a lack of rhythm at the moment? Today I laid out all my 9 patch blocks, moved them this way and that and decided that I quite liked them like this.
I get the argument for placing the red squares symmetrically, or in a cross, and did look at that, just couldn't bring myself to do it somehow. However, having spent all that time fiddling about, I promptly sewed them together wrong: the top left red shouldn't be in that corner at all. So now I have to unpick. Bah humbug.
In view of the fact that they are making people's vision blur, I have decided to have a go with sashing to break them up. I often like other quilters' sashing but haven't really used it myself, so these seems like the moment to give it a go. I may even try a border next.
