So, where do I go from here? Suggestions?? I was originally planning on building each row with pieced sections around the blocks, so that the blocks are off-kilter. I thought that the wonkiness of the blocks would lose something if I sashed the whole thing with a solid grid. But now I'm wondering if that might be the way to go. Thoughts?? HELP!

My block party blocks
As I posted last, I received all of my March Tethered Threads blocks, putting me at an even 24. I plan on setting this quilt 5 x 5, so I made the 25th block, pictured above. Since I had everything out, I figured I'd lay out all 25 blocks and see what they look like together:
What say you? I'm a little embarrassed to admit this, but.... I don't love it :( I certainly don't hate it, but it's not love at first sight, you know? It just looks much crazier than I thought it would. I mean, I love sampler quilts! There are so many cool block party quilts out there! I'm just afraid this isn't one of them... but the thing is, I love all of the individual blocks! The ladies in my group did a really great job! I just don't know how to make those great building blocks (pardon the pun) equal an amazing whole.
