Craftsy BOM Sashed!

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I wanted a pop of jewel tone color for the sashing and found this batik that I love. I think it works very well with the busy blocks. For the backing, I have selected a deep rich royal plum color, very exciting. Still pondering over the binding, but plenty of time till I get there. Goal this week is to seam the backing, get it all pinned in place and start the quilting. I will not be doing a lot of quilting on this piece, I will be stitching in the ditch and probably call it a day at that point. I don't want to detract from the beautiful fabrics and I think a lot of quilting on the top would just be gilding the lily.

Darns asked:
Just WOW! the sashing is great & I agree with you about the quilting - no reason to put a lot of quilting on top of those fabrics - although you might want some simple quilting in some of the larger open spaces.
Applekrisp answered:
Yes, I was thinking about that on some of the blocks that really don't have a lot going on in them. I will probably do so very sparingly though. Glad you approve of the sashing, it sang to me in the
qulady asked:
im going to say the same- WOW! my favorite color is blue, so you had me there, but this quilt top jumps off the page- just amazing, i hope this is destined for your own bed!!
Applekrisp answered:
Well, it's a bit too small for my bed, but it will live in our living room. I have a wall full of beautiful oil paintings of the Sonoma and Mendocino coastline and it just picks up all of the colors so well. I have white sofa's that face each other, so it will likely be draped across on of them. We actually use our quilts in our home.
