Late to the Party

I'm joining the flicker Swoon group, fashionably late. You didn't really expect me to be on time did you. After all I only had this pattern sitting and waiting on me for almost a year. But I do have a good excuse.
This winter is nothing like winter. There has been very little snow, it really hasn't been that cold. So most people are enjoying the warmer winter. At my house, 3 out of 4 of my family members have been sick. We have visited our doctor more this month than I think we did most of last year. 

So what is a mom to do...I've been dreaming of being out in the wild yonder, without coughing, sneezing or inhalers. Personally, I think the swoon block works very well with a western theme.
Of course this is the only western thing in my house. And as of this point I'm not quite sure what direction I hope to go with it. At the time I was making it "it just felt right" Now I have more questions than answers, sashing or not? more cowboys or keep it sutle?  Unfortunately I ran out of the red. So that's not an option. One thing I am certain about is that I would like to get this close to a finished top soon. I think it would really lend itself to being hand quilted.  Do you have any suggestions or a cattle prod to keep me moving?
