The final lay-out after cutting the blocks back to 40 x 40 cm.
I'm sorry the six blocks aren't completely visible. The blocks were lying on the table and I was standing on a chair to take a picture. Too bad I was not tall enough to get the whole picture.
My intention is to add sashing strips of 7 cm wide between the blocks in such a way that they form a nice transition between the blocks (seams of 1 cm included).
This fabric harmonizes best with all the blocks.
It includes pink and blueish.
This is what I mean: blueish green on the right side and soft lilac on the left side of the strip.
I sewed the sashing strip 2,5 cm from the edges of the two blocks. The actual strip will be 5 cm wide.
The top row.
The bottom row.
The blocks fit close to each other, showing a 2,5 cm seam.
I used herringbone stitch to close the seams.
A metal ruler is laid inside to prevent sewing through the sashing strip.
