This quilt decided that it liked the stone sashing after all.
I really liked the yellow.... Leighanna liked the pink....Mom liked white.
My original plan was to use the stone sashing, so I went with my gut feeling and I am so glad that I did.
The blocks really are the show.
All that hard work piecing...some seam ripping...scrapping blocks that didn't quite turn out.
I really love it!
Leighanna was very involved in this whole process. She helped me pick out the fabrics for some of the blocks and while I was sewing it all together, she was my pin puller. She wanted to sew a few seams, but I vetoed that idea! I really wanted to take my time and do it right!
All that is left to do is figure out a backing. I think I might piece a few pinwheels in there too. Perhaps a few of the mishaps that didn't make the front? We'll see.
The quilting of this is going to be tough. I will have to ponder what to do. Stipple, straight line? I don't know yet, perhaps the quilt will tell me when the time comes.
A big and hearty THANK YOU to my friends Carla and Shannon! I loved AND used the scraps of SisBoom fabric that you so graciously gave me, without your kindness, this quilt would not have been!
