What are you most proud of?
That I learnt along the way
Love your work! Great that we can talk about our passions clear across 'the pond' ..... ;) As for the house work, my motto is, it will be there waiting whenever I get around to it!!! LOL
Thank you. I agree it is lovely getting comments from people all over the place. I love being part of the craftsy community. Your work is great too and as for housework!............ there is too much to do so I wear virtual blinkers on my up to my sewing room lol
Your choice of fabrics and colors are outstanding. Are you going to sash it?
Thanks, I think so, at the moment I am adding the 21/2 inch borders described by Leah to FMQ them all separately. I have added black as some of the squares were a bit small so it seemed a good way to size them all up. I have bought a fawny colour to do the sashing and think I will use that as I cannot get a satisfactory layout I am happy with when no massive black space is not together.
I had some of the same problem with sizing a few of the blocks....used white, the same as the sashing to make it work. Think it came out OK. Anyway, it's done and off to the longarm quilter!
Was really looking at your quilt, have you considered a contrast sashing, like that reddish color that's in some of the blocks?
Hadn't thought of red, may see what I can find in my stash to use. A bluey colour might work as well? Will have a look later off to work now. Thanks for your imput it's got me thinking again x
Think you got something there, from the computer image, I can see a soft blueish/gray.......that would be awesome too! :)
