First, let me just say, THANK YOU SO MUCH for all the great suggestions that everyone made for the sashing on my plaids quilt. I really appreciate everyone for putting their two cents in......it makes for a fun day of playing with fabrics, and moving stuff around on the design wall! And what's really fun about that, is that you sometimes throw something up on the wall, totally unexpected, and that's the one that screams out "YES! THIS IS IT!"
I started playing with all the sashings again, and looking back and forth from pic to pic, and I was really leaning towards a lighter beige/cream sashing with the black cornerstones, but it was reading really flat. Ugh! I went back and forth with the black sashing, and still was just kindof flat. Nothing with a spark, and not that I need a spark in every quilt, but flat doesn't make me want to finish it. You know what I mean?
So, imagine my surprise when I thought "Maybe orange!?!"
Yeah, imagine! Me.....orange......hmmm!
Well.....WOOHOO! This is it!
AND.....on point! Holy cow.....I'm loving it now! And I love that it is getting that secondary grid effect from the black cornerstones.....woohoo!
I was so excited about it, I made 5 more blocks, lickety split, so I could really see the wow-factor!
Of course, I'm wondering why it took me so long to think of orange..... (ok.....it's cheddar for you repro lovers! lol......that was for you, Pat..... now leave a dang comment, will ya!?!).
Maybe I should just start each quilt with orange, and go from there......it would probably save a lot of time!
Have a great week!
