Yes, first one. The pattern stands out better.
Happy Quilting.

Wendy, your fabrics are gorgeous!

Here is what my actual blocks would look like with the pieced sashing. I am of such two minds. Too busy but I rather like the pattern. I'll cut some strips of gray and see how I like it.

Judy, I'm also liking the first layout as well.  It's very striking and pops.

Thanks for the input. I'm pretty sure I'm going with the gray sashing and put the pieced blocks in the border. I decreased the sashing strips to finished 1/2" wide. I've never been a fan of wide sashing.

Still playing with it.

I know Im late but I like the first one Judy :)  For me personally it's just easier on my eyes.

I agree with Chelle.  The first layout is much easier on the eyes and I love the ribbon border.

The way to get started is to quit talking and start doing.

I will say that with the pieced sashing, the quilt screams "Bonnie Hunter!" It's the first of her mysteries that I've done, so I should stick to her design, but I do like that Judy's plain sashing gives the eye a place to rest.

Judy, I haven't counted the pieces on your EQ drawing... do we currently have enough of the units to make the ribbon border, or do we have to make more?

Judy, #1. As already pointed out the eyes get to rest. That's a much less dense ribbon border than I have ever made. I like it very much.

Though the BH mystery has been a follow along here for a long time this was the first year I actually followed the activity.

Wendy, thank you for the name of the block. Most blocks get variations over time. Sometimes the name changes, sometimes it doesn't.

Thankfully I hadn't cut anything yet so I don't need to do damage control. I will not be making On Ringo Lake. Sanity prevailed and after reorganizing and cleaning up my sewing areas I have decided the 4 tops I have to quilt are going to be priority.

I'm poking at the size conversion for the design. I will concentrate on the block to start with.

Agnes, I think I have decided the same thing.  I went in to town today with Fred and I looked at some fabrics...thinking of more Aqua,Coral,Brown for On Ringo Lake since I only have the F/Qs I purchased.  As I stood there I was thinking about how much more I would need of each and also thinking about the fact that I (my eye) still am not near ready to begin this journey.  Don't know when I will be.  I still would love to see your math and possibly in time be able to work on a larger version of the block.  I think maybe my cabilities are just not up to BH designs.  Still watching.

I am enjoying seeing people's blocks and different arrangements/colourways.  

I will be finishing this, but probably will use a single colour sashing in green (aqua).  I want to tone down the coral.  I've decided this is the last BH mystery I do where she uses 3-1/2" components.  I really enjoyed last year's using 4-1/2" even though the pattern was more difficult than this year (those darn tri-recs).  This year not so much. I don't like dealing with tiny pieces.

Two different people on the Facebook page posted their design using no sashing at all between the blocks and various border designs with the parallelogram blocks.  All I can say is "wow!".  The aqua (green for me) is much more pronouced without the sashing and a secondary pattern emerges. Both are on point settings.  I really need to get my blocks done and play with arrangement, but right now I'm leaning towards no sashing and a larger border.  

Here is one:  https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=2021779167832307&set=gm.1026951314120836&type=3&theater&ifg=1

Brigit-Carol. I was also thinking about no sashing. I put one corner together with narrow sashing but not sure I like the look. My blocks are so scrappy that I'm afraid the pattern is just mushy if I leave out the sashing. I'm gonna have to decide. Pictures below of both looks. Whatever I do, I'll use those scrappy sashings we made in step 3 floating in the outer border.

Sharon, I'm actually a bit sorry I'm taking this journey but do want to finish it. I really love the non scrappy versions I've been seeing. But there was no way I was going to buy fabric. I managed to use everything out of my scrappy bins. We have a new dog, bet he'll love it no matter how it turns out!  Both dogs usually find a quilt to curl up on.

Judy--With the total scrappy I'm not sure about the really light sashing. Have you tried a green/aqua or something of a different color that blends for the sashing where you have the light in place? I find the neutral stops my eye completely when I would like it to just rest there for a moment. The cornerstones are a great idea. It's your quilt so do what works for you.

I had slung a yard of fabric, opened up, over my big ironing board while it was standing on end. This has been a thorn in my side since I got it from online ordering and it is too short to cover the board. Walking up to it I thought I could actually use it for piecing the enlarged ORL block I am working on. I am ready to start piecing so the next color decision can talk to me. My sewing room is totally cleaned up so I have a clear mind to do so.

Judy, your blocks are beautiful!  It's amazing that you are working with your stash and coming up with such a pleasant blend of colors and fabrics. 

I'm going to begin the journey of using up my stash, and completing UFOs and kits that need to be brought out and made.  I have a wonderful Thimbleberries BOM (12 blocks with all the fabrics for each month) that I have had since 1998 and never even started.  That is going to be a priority for me.
