I have all the sashing on and the rows together! I was going to put a border on but love the way it looks as it is. So that makes another top done! The fabric I was going to use for the border is now going to be the backing. I’m toying with a couple different ideas for the border.
All nine rows are assembled with blocks and sashing. Now to cut the sashing that goes between the rows. Once that is done and all stitched together, I will move on to the borders.
The quilt top is done!
For now it is tucked away until stacking. I am also waiting to hear in whether otlr not the fabric I want for the backing will be reordered. I can source it elsewhere but would rather not.
The small blocks have been assembled into large blocks. Now to decide what width the next round of sashing will be. Three inches is the current front runner.
The initial pieces were cut some time ago and put aside as other things took precedent. I was able to spend some time and assemble the blocks this weekend.
Yes, there are two sizes there. The smaller set is for a coordinated pillow.
The quilt top is done! I’m very happy with it. I have barring, backing and binding materials already but need to celebrate this milestone first.
This patters is from the October 2016 issue of American Patchwork & Quilting.
The majority of the fabric is thrift shop finds.
All the inside borders are done and attached now.
Next comes the outer border. I was going to use the swirly black and white, but it is too busy for my eyes. I put up a grey pillowcase to see what that would look like.
I like the grey idea however that one is too light. I do have a cut of a black and grey plaid that will work, but I need to dig it out and see if there is enough. But not tonight.
