Konstituent
I start today off with my blocks for March 2014 UFO.  Initially though about putting a yellow frame around each and then set them together straight pretty much as you see pictured.  Then I decided to add more of a flare to the setting.  Judy's 60 Pieced Quilt Borders Mix and Match book came to mind.
So I started looking through the designs and didn't get too far before Anything Goes called out "use me"!  I'll have to downsize the blocks for a 9" finished block which shouldn't be too much of a challenge for me.  So now the path is set.  It takes four fabrics for the setting blocks and I have just that.  I was wondering how I could work the gray and white prints into my project....
Here are the start of the setting blocks.  

What do you think?  There is a pieced border to add so I am still figuring out what should go next.  I think the yellow is good then perhaps the black...hmm.

See more great projects through Judy's links today at Patchwork Times.  Happy St. Patrick's Day!

I personally love the pop of yellow.

Ooh! The setting is great -- and that lime-yellow really sets off the black and white!

Wow, those alternate blocks look great! I vote for the yellow as the first border - helps bring out the yellow in the blocks.

I like what you have decided to do, the yellow really makes the blocks pop. All the blocks are talking to you, very nice job.
