I put together 36 blocks for this quilt. Decided to piece together a 6 x 6 because if I did a 5 x 6 the fall would not be enough at the sides. I think with the sashings and border I might just get a nice drop at the sides. I like the idea that I don't have to get all the strips in line with each other!! I only have to make sure that the joints at the green blocks are joined correctly in the middle!!!!
