I have all the blocks made and have decided to add the borders as I go. Border is English Paper Pieced as well, and I am loving the way everything "fits" and lays flat, not always the case with my machine piecing. Who am I kidding, it's seldom the case with my machine piecing, unless it's machine paper fundation piecing.
I am pleased with the red sashing, red is becoming my new neutral. The block borders are scrappy shirtings.
This is a long shot across my design wall, and below is a close up. The pesty white like is the pull cord for my light that I keep forgetting to pin out of the way.
