Prairie Rose Quilt Block..Done (but not put together)

Good morning and happy Sunday! Hope you're having a good weekend. Yesterday I trimmed my Prairie Rose applique blocks and today I want to get them into a top. It's already late in the morning and I have so much stuff to do today that I don't know if I'll get them done or not. I won't bore you with pictures of all of the blocks but here are a couple:
See the background fabric? Well,
as some of you know, when I moved, some boxes were taken from the back of the moving truck when everyone was inside. The background fabric was in one of those boxes. So now I have to finish the top without the background fabric.

I'm trying to decide whether to set the blocks (there are 16) with sashing or set them on point with no sashing or what.
It's so hard to decide...this is all hand applique so a lot of work went into it. Well, I'm off to do grocery shopping while I decide.

Don't forget to enter the January Giveaway. If you haven't entered yet, you can do so HERE. Hope your Sunday is the best and that you get to do some sewing! Cheery wave! Bev

That is going to be one beautiful quilt Bev!! Love the hand applique. That is so much work. You are lucky tho, they could have swiped the boxes with the finished quilt blocks in it. That would have been horrible.

Have a great day.

Beautiful blocks, I bet the thieves got a surprise when they found fabric in the box lol with red sashing & if possible on point would look Marvellous.

Your blocks are beautiful! What a bummer to have the fabric stolen, maybe you can find something close to match with it? I'm sure it will look beautiful whatever you decide :)
