    Default Prairie Flower Blocks Done

    I finally finished my Prairie Flower blocks & have them individually sashed with cornerstones, which I find to be an easier method than Jenny's long strips of sashing. They're ready to be sewn together. I'm still debating whether to leave it like it is or add a floral border. I was thinking about using a blue floral for the border. I have 2 of the Forever Love JRs, but there is not enough of the same fabric for all the way around. I laid out strips of similar fabrics, a different one for each side, but I didn't like that. I might have to order some yardage, or just skip the border. Click image for larger version.

    Very pretty. I am not a good one for border advice, I dont enjoy putting them on. But a scrappy border of the fabrics might look great with these.

    Very nice. I was looking at tutorials the other evening & have decided this will be the next one I make. Appreciate your advice on sashing & corner blocks.

    I think a border of small floral fabric would enhance it, although it is quite lovely already.

    That is very pretty, I like how you are saying to do the sashing , I want to try that . I hadn't really thought about it that way. Thank you very much!

    No border. I love it just the way it is. Reminds me of Little House on the Prairie!

    This is beautiful! What fabric is this? I really like the way you put the colors together in the blocks.

    I love this pattern and your fabric is so pretty! Great idea about putting the cornerstones/sashing on each block.

    I think a flower border would be nice. How about scalloping the border too? It would really be sweet.
