I have finished 24 Ohio Star blocks that I will use to make a donation quilt for children's hospital. It will be for a teen-aged boy and is made out of men's shirt fabric. I took pictures of two lay-outs and want your opinion. The first one is must mixed up and the second one has diagonal rows of the same color blocks. I'm leaning towards the second one.
The blocks measure 9" finished so without sashing, this part will measure 36" x 54". I will be adding a border to bring the size up to the requested size, which is large enough to cover the bed but not hang over (because of the side rails). Do you think I should add a narrow sashing also? I kind of like the blocks right next to each other.
I don't know what fabric I will use for the border, but it would have to be darker. I'll wait until I get home to see what I have on hand. Out of sight - out of mind!
I hope there is a boy who won't mind the pink looking fabric. It is actually kind of a coral color and white weave, but looks like pink at a distance.
This is our last week with DS/DIL and then we will spend a few days in Sisters and a few days with BIL/SIL - then return to Texas. We're looking forward to going home, but have had a wonderful trip and good times with family.
I hope you have a wonderful 4th of July and that it isn't too hot!
