Auditioning the corners

original yellow corners
The past week or two I've been super motivated to get some UFO's finished up.  Good progress is being made - slow but sure.

This morning I came across the perfect red fabric for the final border on Courthouse Stars - a Fons & Porter design.  But first, there's a decision to make and I'm stuck.

Originally, a plain yellow block was put in each corner, but it's bothering me.

The corners want to be dark, and I'm not quite sure how to do it.  So here's a few samples.
Simple dark HST

Rail fence

Log cabin facing outward
Log cabin facing center
It helps to look at pictures, don't you think?  Right now I'm leaning to the Log Cabin facing center, but it might be because of the value of the colors.  Rail fence is probably the easiest. Now is the time to replace those corners before the border is added.

Time to use my "Ask a friend."  What do you think?  Time to vote, everyone!


  1. I think you are right--log cabin facing center! It's kind of a pain to switch out, but you will happy that you did if it's bothering you now.

  2. What a great way to try to figure out how to finish... Except I can't even pick a favorite. Maybe three... :)
