Channeling My Inner Yankee Doodle


As you can see, Mon Ami has grown and altered a bit with the addition of sashing and cornerstones. What's next? Ah, THAT's still a mystery, even to me--perhaps to me most of all! I like the scrappy triangle border in the original pattern but what to use to transition from what I've done so far to the point of adding an inner border? And I think I need to look in my stash for outer border fabric as well. Stay tuned to see what happens.

Meanwhile, at ease, soldier!

Wow, that looks terrific! What a great addition to the blocks, just great. Me, I'd call it done, but will look forward to see what you come up with for a border.

I like your colours so much better the the original design. Your choice of using the creams/beiges instead of the whites gives it that antique/Americana look instead of the bright red, white and blue look. I think it looks great!
