The guild retreat was this weekend so the blocks from that are on my wall. The pattern calls for 25 blocks (set 5 x 5)with a scrappy sashing but I've decided to make 35 blocks (set 5 x 7) and have no sashing or a solid black sashing. Below are pictures of the two possibilities.
If I decide to use no sashing, I'll pieces at least one border using the same fabrics that are in the blocks.
If I use the black sashing, I'll use either the block background fabric as cornerstones or continue with the color created in the chain. I want to use the fabric below as either one of the borders or wide bias binding, depends on how much I need/have.
This fabric was my inspiration fabric. Isn't it funny how sometimes the inspiration fabric ends up being a minor player in the quilt, or not used at all?
I'm leaning towards using the black sashing. What do you think?
I'm guessing that this will be on my wall again next week because I have a full week of activities and I still have 8 blocks to make. Hopefully what will be reported next week will be the border(s) progress. Also, since I missed making my stash report yesterday I'll be sure to catch with that next Sunday.
