I put the block on top of the fabric that I am planning to use for the sashing strips. One of my inspiration pieces for this project is below; it gives you an idea of how the colors come together.
This quilt is rather labor intensive. There are 81 mostly teensy weensy pieces in each 10" block. I need to take it at a moderate pace or else things become wonky. I'm hoping to have 10 blocks finished by the end of Memorial Day weekend.
