Quilting cotton fabrics and paper piecing
I have the Christmas blocks laid out on the living room floor. I have chosen a gold tone on tone for the sashing. Trying to figure out how wide I want to make the sashing and if I want a border in addition to the sashing.. I have 2 ideas. 2.5" sashing before attaching and no border. OR 1.5" sashing before attaching and a 2..5" border of green with gold.
Wow mpac I haven't had time to consider what to put as either sashing or borders - the gold tone on tone sounds nice with the Christmas fabrics - I think I am going to wait and see what Amy does and then make my decision as to how big the border and/or sashing will be. Look forward to seeing what you decide to do.
Can you believe we're almost done? These blocks are wondeful as always. Can't wait to see your final quilts.
WasNewbieJean, I love your new name. The class has done wonders for me too. I am looking forward to completing both quilts.
Thanks mpac - maybe someday I'll become NotaNewbie!
Gorgeous... as usual:) Cant wait to see your finished quilt.
Thanks, desna. I was just thinking about where I was a year ago today. I was in Ireland. I loved the trip and Ireland was more beautiful than I could have imagined.
Ireland is a beautiful place... if only we had the weather to match it, but then it might not be as green;) Still I would love a little more sunshine.
mpac, I think that your blocks are beautiful ( as usual ). They are so very different, you get a completely different feel from both. Thank you for the info on size. I haven't started this months yet, a house full of wonderful company. It will be really great, when we can see each others finished quilts. Thank you so much for sharing.
Beautiful blocks for two awesome quilts.
