Not much progress......

I was way too worn out last night to do much.  I put all of the blocks and sashing strips that are done on the wall, still need 3 more.







When I cut the 6.5" squares from my Kaffe fabrics a couple years ago, I had a narrow strip leftover.  It is wide enough to cut a 1.5" strip out of so I have been using them for the sashings.

Here are two groups ready to sew.

After I sew and press it, I cut a 3.5" strip from it and this is what is left, pieces 2.25" or 2.5" wide.  Seeds for a new project!
I hope I have some pep today to make a lot more sashing strips.  It is supposed to be cooler and less humid today.  We'll see if they are right this time.

A note to owners of Blogger blogs:  If you do not enable your email address, we can't answer your questions.  It isn't enough to just have an account, you need to enable your email too.  If you don't know how I can help you (just ask).

Also if you aren't getting very many comments on your blog, please change your comment setting to Pop up window and everyone will be able to leave you a comment.  This works around the current problem in Blogger.

I keep waffling between liking the busy sashing & wondering how would those block look abutted next to each other...

At the end of the day I know EXACTLY which version I would end up with... :o)

Your blocks are gorgeous!

I have seen that many people have trouble with Blogger, I do not do my blog through them but lots of time when I try to leave others comments it won't accept it.
I love your blocks and strips. The weather has been very hot and humid here too and we missed the rain once again this morning.

seems like blogger has a new "problem" for us to work-around every other week! I love the way this quilt is turning out...

I really like the bold lines in this layout! My LQS marked all the K. Fassett fabrics at 50% off, so with visions of amazing Exuberant Color quilts, I snatched up several. I'm sure I'll regret not buying more, but there are always limits....

It is really looking good, and love the new project "seeds", too!
