Shoo Fly blocks

Shoo Fly blocks are on the design wall today. This is last year's leader-ender project from Quiltville. I'm not exactly sure of my layout design yet. 
All I know is that I'm starting by sewing four blocks together with 1" white sashing between. I'm auditioning possible other sashing fabrics to be between these blocks. There are 120+ Shoo Fly blocks, so once I get them all sashed and see how that looks, I'll make more decisions from there. It's so much easier using sashing with these blocks... no seams to match.
Linking up to Small Quilts.

That seems like a really good way to deal with SEW many small blocks, Kathy!

They look great. If I remember correctly these were pretty small, right? I think your plan to move forward is wonderful. Laughed at your new header once I figured it out.

Your shoo fly blocks look great. I would never have thought of sewing them in groups of four first, always seem to stitch long unweildy rows!

Your cute blocks look wonderful all together!

Cute shoo fly blocks. I made a few. Too tiny, like the bow ties. Good to sash them so they behave.
