I finished trimming the blocks, decided on a layout and sewed the blocks together. It ended up 22" x 44". At first I thought I might quilt it with close parallel lines with a variegated thread from top to bottom. Then I started questioning whether I really want the narrow lines to have stitching running through them. Then I thought maybe I would quilt each block with matching thread in lines parallel to the narrow strip. Next I thought maybe I would just ditch quilt between rows of blocks and on each side of the narrow band. I will let this all percolate until I can make a decision.
