"Design Wall" Bed

Dianne provided me with the matching green fabric so I could add another thin border to match the sashings she had used. So now I think this top looks much better. On to making the binding strips and sending this off to Catherine for quilting.

I have gone back to working on Bonnie Hunter's last mystery, "Carolina Christmas". [ I went with Black instead of Christmas Green.] I have the blocks sewn together into "foursies", and now I am working on the sashing. Bonnie didn't suggest sashing, but these blocks are a little to busy for me to put them slam-up-against each other. I have the cross-wise sashing attached.


I laid them on the "design wall" bed to consider whether or not I want to use cornerstones where the sashing meets. Right now I'm thinking black cornerstones.

Smell of fresh bread baking
Good stretching at exercise class
Light covering of new snow refreshes everything

Great idea to put the sashing! I am still trying to decide what to do with my blocks.

I really like the sashing in there. It would be too busy for me also, without something. You are doing great! Hugs, Finn
