Design Wall Monday #23 - Sweet Treats

I have made some progress on my Sweet Treats quilt along, but not enough to start a new project (ie. the next Patchwork Times quilt along)! 
This is how my design wall looks today with two rows sewn together and another sashing row ready to join.


The cornerstones blocks aren't finished yet because I made a miscalculation on the size. 





I didn't like my first version, which as you can see, had a too large strip around a too small center square, and resulted in a sashing size that was too large.  I am cutting down the ones I have sewn and am much happier with how they look in the two rows that are sewn together. The dotty light sashing fabric is just perfect and the whole project cheers me up every time I have a chance to sew a little more on it.
Hop over to Patchwork Times to see more design walls.
