One of our marketers has a 3D printer and she made little HEROES elastic holders.

Can you post a picture?

I bought one of the crocheted with buttons...broke the elastic straps over and over. I gave up. I'll just have to deal with it, I guess :( LOL!!!

now to think about a border.

How about very thin piano keys? 

(I am thinking pencil-thin piano keys ... perhaps even a preprinted rainbow fabric that might be lurking in your stash.)

I was kind of thinking of small 4 patches on point, similar to the centers of the tails - but not as small.  And not completely all the way around.  I'll make a few and see what they look like.  I also like how it looks now, I may just leave as it, put a narrow black sash, then binding black with a bright flange.  still thinking

Sounds excellent.  Doesn't really need an elaborate border, just wanted to give you an idea to ignore.  :-)

Still playing with stuff out of scrap bags I've received.  These center blocks are 5.5" and I decided to do something with them this week.  I wanted a wonky look so I'm using Jodi Barrows method as it's easiest for me.  I will have to make a few extras to enlarge the quilt.  But hey, I mostly use OPF so it's a savings to me.  I hate to waste good fabric.  

The spin direction depends on which way you turn the block as you trim at the 60 degree angle. I did some clockwise, some counter clockwise to get the B & W to be next to each other and make a secondary pattern. 


Also took a Fabric Roadtrip with 5 friends on the 8th.  Went to M&L down in Anaheim, CA about 1.5 hrs south of us.  They have a ca-jillion bolts and flats of fabric.  Me in my Happy Place.  Like I needed more fabric.  Wait, yes I did.... greys/neutrals/whites for backgrounds.  Prices are really cheap for the 'off the bolt flats' I'm standing next too. $3.49 a yard and they are name brand mfgs too.   Life Is Good... We had lunch at Norm's Diner, an LA area landmark.  Great food at great prices
