Here's the second round to my guild's version of the Round Ostrich. Anyone want to help me proofread it or offer ideas?

If anyone has any good ideas for rounds D & E I'll take suggestions too!
I've also been working on making some blocks from that plaid material I got back when my local Hancock's was going out of business. I'm using a pattern from Bonnie's site, called Hidden Spools, but I'm not as happy with it as I thought I would be.
This is my first 4 blocks, not sewn together yet, which is why the plaid in the middle looks funny. :) Bonnie warned that there would be all bias edges - but on this loosely woven plaid fabric, there's a LOT of stretch.
I can't decide if I need to go on and put some straight-of-grain sashing in now, or sew these 4 together THEN put a border around it. It'll be a wheelchair quilt for my guild's charity challenge, so there's no exact size requirement I'm going for.
The red was supposed to cheer it up some, when I put the blue and plaids together, it looked too dreary... there IS another plaid with a lot more red that I plan to use for this one too. If I put sashing between these 4 blocks, I could use that to help blend in that red. But if I sash the blocks, I'll lose that red spool in the center. Any hints, anyone?
