I decided I needed to make two more rows on the "Candy Ribbon" (AKA Smith mountain) quilt. I had it laid out on the floor and it just didn't look right as a square quilt.
No problem...it isn't as if I had cleaned off the cutting table or anything...Also, I made an extra red star and an extra setting block. Just warning if you decide to do this with four colors it multiply the confusion level of this quilt 10x! After a few sessions of laying out the blocks I realized I needed a plan that I could follow each time...even with it I ended up with two "bonus" blocks!
As far as the border goes I'm thinking of using the HST and making sort of a ribbon around the edge.
It goes with the quilt "theme" and it uses a block from the quilt. Which not surprisingly I have a large stack of already made. What do ya'll think?
