I finished 9 blocks using the herringbone tutorial. The problem I have now is that it uses up quite a bit of fabric so even though I have lots of pieces and strips left, none are long enough to make any more blocks. So that's it for the designer fat quarter bundle and that means this is all I'm doing. I did stop at the quilt shop and buy a larger piece of the owl print to use as backing and I bought some of the red print for the binding. I could piece the leftover strips together to make binding but I did that with my last few projects and I don't want to get complacent. Plus the design is busy enough.
Now I have to decide what to do next. Do I sew them together just as they are or should I put some sashing strips in-between the squares to make each square stand out on its own? I think I will leave it up on the design board for a while and decide later.
