I'm loving these funky wrench nut and bolt blocks. Not only do they look pretty cool, but you get two different blocks for the price of one.
As this quilt grows bigger and bigger I am beginning to think about the next stage of the process and turning the blocks into a quilt top.
Since a very early stage in the project I have wanted to join the blocks with no sashing and create a sort of checker board effect with the dark and light blocks. BUT there is quite a discrepancy in the sizes of the different blocks. Some are 13"; some are 12.5" and some are 12" (or even smaller). I guess that I COULD add borders to the smaller blocks to make them all the same size, but some of the borders would be TINY and I think it could become quite bulky and messy very quickly.
I have heard that by using sashing I can compensate for these discrepancies in size, but then the next question becomes "What colour should I make the sashing? I don't really want to add any more colours into the mix and am not convinced that I want any of the existing colours to dominate any more than they already do.
Hmmm... I really don't know what to do.... Any and all advice or suggestions very very welcome! I am petrified that I will make a terrible beginners blunder, which at this stage in the project would be a real real shame!
Anyway, here's the collage as it stands:
