Q&A with Moberme

This is an awesome quilt! I also am drawn to the Palm Springs Pattern but had not invisioned it in the blacks and whites as you've done; it looks so modern and I am sure your friends daughter will be proud to display it in her home. Good job! I'm wondering if the white sashing piece was very tedious?
Moberme answered:
Thank you! I agree that this pattern is really engaging. The Bride requested neutrals with a splash of color. She's a basic black and gray girl, but is trying to do more with color. So, I used the Marcia Derse petites for the main orangey, gold accent. And my daughter said the same thing you did, "I would want it in my house!" I consider that the supreme compliment. The sashing is actually an dark ecru so I'm hoping that it will live a long life?? I also used it for the binding. fyi, it's very easy to sew to the sides of the Trapezoids. Just follow Weeks' instructions on the pattern. The tricky bit is getting each row to line up, but even that went surprisingly easily. This is a lovely project to make! I highly recommend it.
