When I begged for help late Sunday night, I expected to get a handful of opinions and go with whichever of my mediocre setting plans seemed most popular. I'm absolutely overwhelmed by how many responses I got on Stashbusters and as blog comments and by email!
There were suggestions to go with the blue or the yellow (mostly the yellow), a better silhouette for the applique cat (which I'm definitely going to use on a future quilt!), ideas about adding a piano key border or to use the littler string blocks as squares in a disappearing nine patch....all of them ideas that I never in a million years would have thought of on my own.
Angie suggested using the blue and yellow to make hourglass blocks. That seemed like a good way to get myself out of this mess, even though I'd never tried an hourglass block before, so I tried it this afternoon.
Did everyone but me know the hourglass blocks would make a star?!
