I've been collecting quilt blocks for a friendship quilt for a fellow blogger (sshh it's a surprise). These are the blocks I have received so far.
I might have a couple more trickling in too. I need your help in deciding if the blocks need sashing and if so, what color would you use? One of the white squares will have a brown applique on it. The other white square is a place holder for the next block that comes in the mail. I haven't decided on the exact placement of each square yet. I want to wait to see if any more blocks arrive.
I'm having the hardest time getting a good photo of these blocks for some reason. This is one of my blocks. It hasn't been trimmed down to size (12.5") yet. I embroidered the word "friends" in white in the center.
I also embroidered this tree. I was planning on writing all the names of the people who contributed blocks in this tree. Kind of like a Family Tree but instead a Friendship Tree. This block hasn't been trimmed down either. If it looks too dark for the quilt, then I will trim it closer to the tree and add a light border so it blends in the quilt better.
So, sashing yes or no? If yes, what color would you use?
