The chain blocks look like quite a mish-mash on their own, but the design comes together when they are combined with the Ohio Star blocks. I laid the blocks out and tried not to obsess about placement too much. My usual concern is to get a pleasing spread of color, without too much of one color clumping up in an area. With all the blocks being such a mix of the various prints, that was not difficult.
I sewed the blocks together in rows. Next step is to join the rows then add the pieced border. But those steps will have to wait for a few days. I'm off to Chicago on a business trip!
