Design Wall Monday

I have too many projects in progress and I tend to flit from one to the other instead of finishing something. This zigzag has been on my design wall for weeks. It's not big enough and I just couldn't decide to how to make it bigger since I used two thrift store aloha shirts for the fabric. Last Friday I found another of the navy and white shirts in goodwill. Whoever would have thought that two identical size xxl shirts that were made in Hawaii would end up in my small town. I have some kona yellow that I think will work instead of the other print. I want to have this finished before I go back to the beach with my cousin. She hasn't been able to spend much time at her beach home since her brother had a brain bleed, but we all hope she will back there full time soon.

Stash Auditions

Auditioning stash for alternate blocks.

Two of these are a definite no. I could put the blocks on the diagonal on all but the first one. I have enough blocks for a large quilt for my bed. Will I regret not making something like this for alternates?

If you think one of the solid blocks would work let me know which one you'd choose.
