The more you rip out the better you get at it. Just sayin'.  :laughing:

I did that back in the dark ages, when I made my first quilt! I tried to pair smallish blocks with biggish ones to even it out. :laughing: We all learn by our mistakes and it will no doubt look great even if less than perfect.  :D

That's looking good.  If you're putting sashing between the blocks you will have some leeway to even out bits that are not quite right - you can do a lot with a bit of judicious pulling and pushing.  If something just won't play nicely you can ususlly just undo the end of a seam and restitch it a little bit bigger or smaller.

well my back is sore from sewing most the day plus my finger slipped onto the rotary blade,  :thinking: it would never stop bleeding. I finished off the sashing, now i want to do two borders. What you think should I do a border with the left over strips.

That looks great!  That's the sort of thing that I usually do with the border - using leftover bits - will you do another black border outside it?

Hope the finger is recovering.
I might look as though I'm talking to you, but inside my head I'm sewing.

Personally I don't think it needs a border - it takes away from the drama of the quilt itself, but it's your quilt so your decision. :)
