Settled on mustard

I started out thinking I would use the gray and turquoise.  I left it on the way for a day, and decided it wasn't working for me.  There is way too much gray in the PNW for me to add a gray quilt.  So, I decided to go with a mustardy yellow.

I liked this much better for me.  I started sewing all the smaller units together, then added the sashing bars.  As I put it on the design way, I realized I wanted a bigger quilt, so I added more sashing between blocks.  I also added solid blocks and arranged it to look like a tic tac toe board. 

It is still a bit small, so I think I will added more green to the outside.  I haven't sewn any of the sashing yet, so that may change.  I did think about arranging the blocks so there was a cross of the Echo fabric.  I may try that later and see if I like it.  I am not a huge fan of symmetry, though, so it will probably stay in this arrangement.  We'll see what happens tomorrow.
