I think this is my final layout of the African courthouse steps blocks. The border audition: these are the sewn strip sets I had for a previous African quilt I was going to make. There are 3 sets there, orange, blue and gold. Each one is the full 45" long so I can cut lots of sections out of them for a piano key type border. I could make a green set too so I may audition that later today. With just the blocks it would be 73" long and 49" wide so I thought about just putting borders on the sides for a better proportion. I will know more after I get the ends and bottom sashing strips on.
The 4 blooms are on the ends of 2 leaves. This is the first time I have had 2 blooms on more than one leaf at a time.
