    I could use some ideas for making my circle more circular. It needs “improv”-ment.

      Love your play on words Susanne! To me it looks like it could use a splash of a different
      color for contrast.Something like lime green and yellow for the circle would show up great.
      Or if you wanted to keep with the same color, a solid black and solid white would show the
      circle shapes. HelenW

    I'm using warm brights in each block with blue accents. Trying out the navy fabric for sashing.

    I was nervous about the curved piecing so I did my drunkards path blocks using raw edge applique.

      Please review the sizes for the sashings and borders. We all know the blocks will finish at 4” so the short sashings will be cut 4.5 “ long but what are we cutting the width?

        Dee, I am working on the sashing and outside borders. I remember you said to cut the sashing 1.5" wide and you said your borders were going to end up @ about 4.5. Could you go a little more in depth about the process you used to determine how long and how far apart your slivers were in the borders?
