What advice would you give someone starting this project? The rows aren't sewn together and it's on a lumpy surface, but this is the general look of it. It will have a green inner border and a paisley border. It should end up about 70 by 94, which will probably shrink 5 or 6 inches, so it'll still be a roomy lap quilt. It would either need a very eclectic person, or a very neutral room. The borders and the quilting will hopefully tone it down.

How wide are your sashing strips?

They are 2 1/2 inches. I think Amy used narrower ones on hers.

Yowza! Your sashing really makes all your great work stand out! Well done on the whole thing!

Thank you, it's fun to see it coming together.

AGHH! Do you really think it will shrink that much?

That looks really, really good! I still have a few blocks to make to get caught up. I need to post pictures of the last several that I've finished.

I lov e your fabric choices and the way they settle i n to the lavender! and I envy people who are creative with color choice- the blue is not what I would though of for the sashing- but it is perfect!

Thank you. I struggle with color. I guess that's why my favorite is scrappy kitchen sink type quilts.
