To sash or not to sash

. I had the rows up on my design wall without the sashing. I was starting to like it that way without the sashing. I decided to sash afterall.

I am working on my project for the Madrona Road Challenge with the Modern Quilt Guild. They sent us some fat eights of the blue line. I LOVE it so much that I bought more. I am going to use this quilt in my family room because it is the perfect blue for the room. And it has yellow. Yellow, how I love you.

It is hard to see, but there is an intentional staggering of the rows where there is white on the end of each other row. I guess the quilt technically would make this picture be turned to one side.

I had to finish the top up so I could get to my design wall. I use it every step of the way for making quilts. I love that it keeps all my pieces in order. But you see, I have three other WIPs on my design wall that are taking up space on the outside ends of it. I haven’t figured out what I want to do with them, so they are still up there, taking up the space.

I kind of like looking at one of them though. It may just stay there for a long while.


A couple days ago I received this beauty in the mail! I had entered a blog give away on Dee's lovely blog and I won! This is my first bloggy win ever. I do so love me some floral fabric. If I lived in a different house…one that didn’t include my husband and two boys…I would be totally girly. So I try to keep the pretties to my Lair. This is going to be perfect in my little space. And it was packed with more floral fabric. Yay me!
