On the wall

The Around the World swap blocks are coming in, and I know that with 6" blocks, it will take quite a few to make even a throw.  There are fewer than 20 coming.  So I have been making a few extra blocks here and there, and while in the process, considering all the possible settings for the blocks.  Sashing?  Dull, been there, done that.  On point?  What do I put in between?  Strippy?  No real focus fabric comes to mind.  Alternating with a pieced block?  Hmmm... 

Although I could change my mind after all the blocks are here, I made a bunch of hourglass blocks today.  Here's how it looks so far.
