Kelli and I are gearing up for some big quilting projects but before that gets into full swing, I have been busy cutting out spool blocks so that I have something to work with as a leader and ender project.
My stack of finished spools is really growing.
Then remember last week I showed you some blocks I was working on then asked for some advice on sashing or no sashing? Well we went with sashing. We didn’t take your advice on white. We went with a soft yellow check. What do you think?
I love the soft yellow. Isn’t it unusual that there isn’t even yellow in the blocks yet it works?
I have a stack of fabric that needs to become a finished quilt. I have a deadline so I need to quit these things and get working on the deadline project.
To see what others are working on, check out Patchwork Times.
Perfect! Love the sashings with the red cornerstones! Popping effect!
sometimes I am really surprised when I audition different fabrics on what works, things I don’t usually think about are the most satisfying. really nice, don’t know how you get so much done.
The soft yellow enhances the blocks. White would have been too stark. I look forward to seeing the whole quilt….and to finding out what those big projects are!
I love spool blocks!
I really like the soft yellow check and the corner stones. A very nice compliment to the blocks. Looking forward to viewing the future projects you are going to be starting on.
The soft yellow reads as solid in the picture. It enhances the blocks. The red cornerstones pull the red from the blocks. I really like the whole effect. Bravo!
It turned out great!
The yellow checks is perfect! Having a leader/ender project all ready to go os great!
I love the yellow sashing and red cornerstones. It’s a beautiful top.
Love it! The soft yellow ensures that the beautiful colours of the churn dash blocks are the hero of the quilt top. I’m so glad you didn’t listen to us all!!
The red cornerstones really make this pop, and I do like the yellow. A really beautiful and cheerful quilt!
