So I choose a sashing, hum well I brought sashing as my stash options were too small and then I sewed the sashing on. Now I have been a quilter for 12 years so I don't have a good excuse, but sometimes you just want to stitch instead of "reverse sew"?! So instead of unpicking or resizing I just ignored the uneven size of these blocks and added sashing and cornerstones. (The cornerstone fabric is lots of colourful hot air balloons, looks much better in real life, I promise!) The end result looks good so far, but I am sure that at some point in the future l am going to regret it... undoubtedly when it comes to the basting and its not flat?
Then during the week I managed to sew the rows together and now I need to decide on a border?
The yellow fabric has little wheels on it, busy but fits the theme. The red is the left over fabric from binding my French General quilt. I don't think its bright enough? But I am yet to decide if I will go with this busy roadworks fabric for the border or not? I have heaps, must have been on sale! ;-)
And then I need to decide which category this top fits into ...on my wish list....so is it a kids quilt or an Ohio star?
Happy quilting, Sue.
PS still haven't tackled the mobile phone instruction book to download the pics from all day quilting, sorry promise to do that this weekend ...it's only a little book...bedtime reading perhaps?
