First of all,
I have been away...
on a mini quilt retreat!
My SIL in upstate NY invited me to join her and three others
at a little quilt cottage in upstate NY
I hopped in the car with all of my stuff and headed north.
It was so much fun,
but I don't have any photos to share!
It was 2 1/2 days of sewing to our hearts content and I did.
I'll show what I worked on soon,
but the best thing is,
they invited me back next year!
Now, onto my dilema....
I have been working on these applique blocks for far too long.
They are finished (Woohoo!),
but not trimmed.
Where I am struggling is what to use for sashing.
Normally I know exactly what I want to use,
but this time I can't see what the blocks need.
I'd use either blue or polka dot for the corner stones.
(I don't have any more of the background fabric.)
Blue Polka Dots...
(the blocks REALLY need to be trimmed!)
I would use either the red plaid or another polka dot for the sashing.
It's a bit hard to imagine,
but I thought of using this blue and red polka dot along with two strips
of the blue for the sashing.
These are the fabrics I found that work well with the blocks.
What do you think?
I don't know why this is difficult for me,
but nothing is jumping out and saying
"Pick me! Pick me!"
I don't want to put these blocks away...Again!
Any comments would be greatly appreciated!
