What materials did you use?
cotton quilting fabric
What are you most proud of?
it was fun
Personally, I prefer it without the sashing. No sashing allows the vertical lines to flow. Have to get cracking on my version soon :)
I'm posting this again, because I see that I inadvertently posted as a response to another comment.
One of the main goals of this project is to create a composition without a visible block structure. If you add sashing, you will definitely lose that and I think the composition could suffer. If you feel that you need negative space around the blocks,I would recommend that you create a less conventional composition by arranging the blocks randomly/asymmetrically on your design wall and then filling in the space around them (similar to the Improv Pods project). I agree that the amount of contrast in your gray fabrics definitely pumps up the volume, but I think the quilt will look great however you finish it. Great job!
I agree that sashing would ruin the feel of this quilt. I love it the way it is, but if you wanted to make it less busy, how about just using one vertical strip of blocks on a solid background?
I love this. What fabric line is this? Would fat quarters work? Thanks.
