Blocks are done

 I'm exhausted!
I finished the blocks for my Grandmother's Choice/Civil War quilts.
The blocks aren't in the order to sew -  they were just pinned to my design wall as I finished them.  I need to make eight 4 in. blocks to go on either side of the center and then I have a gorgeous floral border to sew on.
This is the scrappy version.  It also is not necessarily in the order I will be sewing it.  Unlike the other one, I'm going to do some sashing on this one.  I think it needs a common color fabric to calm it all down.
But I'll worry about that tomorrow when I have more energy.

I like the version with the different size blocks. Will make a nice quilt no matter how you decide to sew it together.

Wow--lots of work went into that quilt. It will be a beauty--especially with that gorgeous appliqued medallion! Congrats on getting it to this point!
Your scrappy blocks will look good with a unifying sashing. Love scrappy quilts like that. : )
