Auditions

Today was the first day in a week that I was able to plug in the sewing machine.  I still had a few of the little four-patch kaleidoscope blocks to finish.  Next, I have to decide how to put them together.

I love to set quilts on point, but decided to do something simpler with this little quilt.  I will alternate the pieced blocks with plain blocks.  What should the plain block be?  I had been considering two pinks, chose one, then decided to also look at a pale yellow.  There is a nice aqua stripe that I will use as the inner border either way.  Because of the way the repeats for the blocks are cut, I have plenty of the matching floral print for the outer border.  Here are my choices:
Now I just have to make up my mind and start cutting.
