Another quilter whose work I admire is Gabrielle Swain and she uses a lot of offset arrangements with a variation of half square triangles as setting strips. Her book is Applique in Bloom and if you have a chance to see it you can see her various settings for her quilts. I may try something like that.
So--do I put them away in the box for a while (week? month? year? eternity?) or gift them to someone else to finish. I'm anxious to work on something that thrills/challenges me and this quilt is not doing it unfortunately. I like the blocks by themselves but... Decisions, decisions.
