Strip sashing.......

There are 2 different combinations of fabrics in the strip sashings in this photo.  I think any combination will work after seeing this.  I have a lot of short strips to make some from as well as long strips that I'll sew into a strata and slice into 3.5" sections.  I know I'm not going to make this as big as the one in the book.  I have too many quilts I want to try to make another big quilt right now.
I vacuumed the basement and made one batch of cookies yesterday in preparation of the art quilters' visit on Monday.  I'll bake the other batch of cookies today and finish cleaning my stuff off the tables in the basement.  I also finished the quilting on the gray/floral zig zag but didn't get the binding cut yet.  I hope I find time to do that today too.

Interesting concept....to vacumn the basement.... I have had no basement in my adult life...Texas builds on slabs.... but from my childhood the basement was always neat but never vacumned.... swept and swept and swept but the vacumn was NEVER in the basement.....

Have a great Monday....you sure are getting ready for it....

The quilt is going to be stunning... I want you to know that I am trying very very hard NOT to start one just like yours because it's so gorgeous! Too many irons in the fire right now... maybe some day!

I really like what you are doing with this piece... It is what I call exciting.

Hey I vacuum my basement every week... well maybe every other week for sure. (*._,*)

That is where my office, laundry,guest bedroom, full bathroom and my workroom is. A complete floor, with walk out to the patio.

As always I see you had a productive day. I celebrated Father's Day with two other girlfriends and pizza from the local pizza joint. It was a good day.

Lynne said...

Oh my! Oh wow! Oh .... what can I say? That is absolutely one of the most exuberantly coloured quilts I have ever seen!

My first visit to your blog will definitely not be my last!

great combination. I would never thought to put stripes in between but it looks great.

I am 100% with you on not making a quilt the same size as the one in the book!

I'm almost done with a pillow based on a Kaffe pattern, and that is plenty, plenty, plenty!
