Now that half my Rhodie Blooms blocks are sewn I've laid them out with the planned sashing to see how it will all look. I'm happy! Tilt your head because it will be sewn together on point. 😁
If you're familiar with Bonnie Hunter's Rhododendron Trail you can see her block right in the center there. I was playing with that, tried the hourglasses as sashing, saw the star shape, and decided to make that the middle of the block instead.
I've used a different pink for the outside ring in each block.
And a few purple fabrics too. I'm glad I added the purple, it helps to ground the quilt.
I also auditioned a few different fabrics for that pink square in the center of the limes. The almost solid batik in the pictures above feels a little heavy. I was going to go all scrappy for those, but I quite like this floral:
It has all the same colors as the quilt! If I have enough I'm tempted to use it for all the squares.
Anyway that's half so back to the sewing table! Happy quilting! ❤
