Sashing fabric, and blooms...........

I like this black/white fabric for my sashing.  I haven't decided how wide to cut it yet.  I think I'll use hand dyed fabric for the cornerstones.  I made 4 more stars so I'll show them all tomorrow after I press them.
The hot weather has caused the wigiela to bloom after only showing buds a few days ago.
I have rose colored columbine in several locations. 
I have 2 varieties of pale pink columbine.  This is the palest one, almost white. 
The art quilters are coming today.  It sounds like the big storms are going to wait until late tonight into Tuesday morning.  That is IF they have the forecast right.

We had wind and rain, but where my son lives they had a Tornado. He is the asst. FEMA Director of his County so I'm sure he is busy today. The black and white print is neat looking with the stars. Chris

I have really enjoyed watching these star blocks develop. I think the quilt will be stunning. Good luck with this storm.

I love the sashing you chose. From the photo, I am thinking go a little smaller. But it is always hard to get perspective from a photo. Love the Wigiela! Ours haven't yet bloomed!

love the sashing divides those blocks just right.
your flowers are doing so well. I wish I could grow columbines - I have the shade - just have never been able to get them to grow, they do grow in Arkansas I have seen them in gardens but not a lot.

The umbrella fabric you showed in a previous post is such a fantastic choice between the pinwheel blocks- looks great!

Oh I like that sashing with your colorful stars!
Spring has definitely sprung where I live in AZ, but it's supposed to get HOT later this week (ugh).
My tomatoes, cucumber and chile pepper plants are all blooming.

I like that black and white. It really lets the stars shine!

Sharron Keck said...

I was wondering what you'd use for sashing - that white on black is perfect!

I'm really liking what you're doing with the B/W prints and the sashing. More wonderment from your stash!

Love all your pretty pink flowers.

Beautiful columbines Wanda and I love the stars , the lime green really pops out, and the fabric you're using for the sashing is great.

The pink colombine are really pretty. I have only purple tone ones in my garden. One is purple and almost white and the other is lavender. They are really pretty and it is too bad that they don't bloom all summer long. My purple and white Iris are going to be blooming soon as the buds are really getting big. Hope the storms go away. I love rain but hate storms.

I hope the big storms miss you! THis weather is crazy!
