Block-a-Palooza - framing and sashing...

It's been a couple of months, but I haven't forgotten about my Block-a-Palooza blocks.  I just wasn't sure exactly how I wanted to set them.  Finally, I decided to frame each block first with a one inch border and then sash them together with two inch strips and red cornerstones.  The frames allowed me to square up each block more easily without nipping any geese noses or triangle tips.  My sister found the red cornerstone fabric and noticed that it matches the spots in the Scottie's bows exactly!

All the blocks are framed and half are sashed, so i'm almost there.  Then on to the border and backing...









I am linking up to Work-in-Progress Wednesday over at Freshly Pieced.  Go check out the projects!
