Country Threads Block of the Month: August

I think this has been my favorite project this year.  I find these blocks relaxing to work on and I like how they're going together.  I will say, though that I'm starting to think, "sashing" at this point because having them next to each other looks a bit chaotic to me.  Some of the spaces are meant to be filled in with flying geese pieces and half square triangles so that even adds to the busyness more.  But in general, I like the traditional look and the variety:

I'm already thinking of ways that I might change it up a bit here and here....but, we'll see.


  1. I agree with you that sashing might help calm things down a bit. Perhaps you can group several blocks together and then sash them?

  2. I am liking these blocks Nina, it'll be fun to see what you decide as the blocks fill in.
