Thanks to all of you who suggested ways to sash my Kathy Schmitz Sweet Stitches Block of the Month! As you've heard me mention before, these were supposed to be individual little quilts. I chose to make them one large quilt. I can't believe I finished in under a year, too! I tried several different fabrics as sashings, but not a single one worked for me. Quilt Sue had a great idea - use the same fabric from the center stitcheries!
I can't thank you enough for your suggestion, Sue! It was right there in front of me all this time, but it just took a clever quilter to point me in the right direction! Sue also suggested I make scrappy flying geese around the outside - one fantastic idea, but at this point I am just ready to put this quilt to bed - literally! Sorry for the lighting - I have my design wall in the laundry room.
Here is a slightly closer look. I decided to lay them out in rows according to seasons. Sasha wanted to make sure I got her in the picture - she's such a ham! Gracie May is still banned from the laundry room - too many nooks and crannies for her to find trouble, so we'll wait until she's too big to fit into them!
I hope all of you in the midwest and east get through the nasty cold! Now that we're retired and don't have to be anywhere, we would sure like snow in our neck of the woods, but we'll have to be satisfied with watching it around the rest of the country.
