More Quilt Blocks... & Need Help!

First of all, here is this week's Layer Cake Quilt Along (Week #3) quilt block. This block is a basket, but I call it "Fish & Bubbles in a Basket" because of the fabric I chose. This line of fabric is "Lollipops" by Sandy Gervais. Oh, this is going to be such a fun child's quilt when done.

From left to right: LCQA Weeks 1, 2, 3:

Back in July I had started some quilt blocks which were free patterns on Moose Quilts but I had only completed 9 of the 12 quilt blocks. I finished off the last 3 quilt blocks this week:

Block 10: Bears Paws

Week 11: Duck & Ducklings

Week 12: Corn & Beans

Here are all 12 blocks laid out in chronological order from 1-12, left to right, top/middle/bottom rows.

I have a dilemma: WHAT COLOUR OR PATTERNS OF FABRIC SHOULD I USE FOR SASHING & BORDERS???? I want to insert sashing between & around the blocks, then add the borders. The fabric store where I bought the fabrics doesn't have these fabrics in stock anymore... sigh!! What's a gal to do????? Please help me decide!!


  1. what about some of the light green or the light blue and then in plain fabric? Love the patterns.

  2. I'm wondering how a solid yellow might go for sashing, maybe with green cornerstones. Of course it would all depend on getting the right tones in the unpatterned fabrics.
