This layout seems to be the one for me:
I am going to focus on my attention on three colors, green, cheddar, and red when deciding on the sashing colors. I just need to try things out and see what happens with it. I havent thought about the borders yet, but I will tie in some scrappy goodness with basket (not sure if it will be applique or pieced) basket blocks for cornerstones.
Of course, I am open to suggestions!!!
