I need help
I know some of my valued friends will have great ideas for
what to do with one of my oldest (if not THE oldest) UFO.
Early in my quilting career a guild member suggested that I join a hand-piecing bee that met at her house. I did. And I thoroughly enjoyed hand piecing the blocks. But the thought of putting an entire quilt together by hand seemed beyond my skill set. So that's as far as I got with these Tree of Life blocks some 20 years ago.
These blocks "should" finish at 14". Unfortunately, they vary about 1/4".
And, also, because of the distinct variation in backgrounds, some sort of sashing will be required.
My first instinct was to set them like this:
But I would be in a quandry on what to do with those huge corners!
My second inspiration is to do something like this ...
... which would allow me to do something interesting in the center
and possibly the setting triangles, as well. But I feel it's somewhat uninspired.
I'm thinking a wall hanging, so I don't really want to get too carried away. And I think I am now comfortable with assembling by machine, though I may want to make any alternate blocks by hand.
The urgency is I want to be able to show this in May 2019.
What say you?
