Progress.........

I cut and pieced the last 4 blocks and then trimmed them all to the same size.  With my two friends helping I got the blocks arranged and added the Kaffe Fassett yarn dyed woven striped sashing strips.
Then I decided on a dark purple/burgundy shot cotton for the corner blocks rather than following the directions for the quilt in the book.  Last night I sewed the sashing and cornerstones onto each block so it is ready to sew the blocks together now.

I like the dark corner blocks. They fit in with your fabric choices.

I love this, Wanda! Those striped sashings are great....you always know exactly what fabrics are needed to really make the blocks sing!
We are having a cold, rainy day here in Virginia...perfect day for sewing!! Yesterday, I made a big pot of vegetable beef soup, so I don't even have to worry about cooking...more time for sewing.... Loved your snow pictures yesterday, but I hope we don't get any for a while...too much to do this time of year without having to worry about getting around in the snow, and, for us, a lot of times our snow has sleet mixed in...makes for treacherous road conditions....

I love it - as usual! You have such a wonderful sense of color and I enjoy seeing what you're up to every morning. Also love that your blog does not have pop-up ads - so annoying! Merry Christmas!

I agree with Sewyouquilt2 - Kaffe needs you on his team! This is another 'favorite' for me!
