Several people asked me what sashing color I’m going to use … nope, not purple! I’m going with a gray dot. I’ve had this in stash a while and I’ve been waiting to use it with the fabrics from this bin.
I prefer using cornerstones when I sash quilts but didn’t want a large square so I’m going with 4 patches. My sashing isn’t as wide as the vintage quilt but I’m glad I went a little wider than I originally planned – it’s looking good. I’ve got this one half way assembled but I’m going to take a break and bind for a while. I will be posting some brief instructions on my website but if you want details right now, I’ve got quilt notes at this post.
Mom’s been busy too – she got another one of the tops we kitted up for her in January assembled. This was from one of my books but there’s a similar version out there for free too. Lanterns quilt.
