New Project - Step #5

I'm starting to feel the time pressure with this challenge quilt because the deadline to become a finished quilt for the Scrap Sister's Challenge is May 15.

The next decision was what to do with the many green strips in the envelope. Having no other ideas at the time, I just made a stack of 4 patch blocks.

Now I need to figure out how to integrate them into this quilt. 

I don't know... sprinkle them around the quilt? Use them as sashing? There aren't enough to go around the quilt for a border, but maybe partial borders?

I will ask the quilt and see what she says!

Well, I like what is happening so far! Looks like fun too.

A very modern looking quilt and a great way to use up the scraps. Perhaps you could wrap the 4 patches around a corner.

Can you frame the green 4 patches around a pinwheel block like a medallion?

Dear Kathy,
I hear you, sometimes we are so close to the project we need to just take a deep breath and step back. Another suggestion from the peanut gallery: on the long rectangular blocks, add one four patch in green. Then place these logs with a four patch at either a beginning or end of said log randomly with either a star or a improve large square next to or above or below the log. Just having the four patches scattered will create interest, less is more. You do not want them to overwhelm the rest of the quilt? Your blocks looks good.

The green is a very dark value, so much different from the other colors. My humble suggestion would be to scatter it out so that it isn't overpowering.

Sprinkling the greens is distracting. I'd mass them at the bottom left.
