What Are You Working On Now?   General Discussion

Finished all the blocks last night.  I was measuring and cutting the sashing when I realized.  Darn it.  I don't have enough of the black speckled.  Grrrrr.  I thought about not using sashing, but putting the blocks together with the seams will be much much easier with narrow sashing.  Fortunately connecting threads still has the fabric - it is a wide backing fabric that I had left from my Christmas quilt.  Fingers crossed that when it arrives it is close enough - you never know with black if they use the same base or not.  So I don't want to sew any of the sashing I've cut until I'm sure I won't have to change it.  Darn it.  I hate waiting.

So I am going to work on a pieced border - this needs something more than just a slab o border.  I'm thinking some more string triangles to make a sawtooth border, outside a black inside border - since I'll have plenty of the black.

Then you'll be mailing it to Indianapolis? :P 

Wow!!! You sure whipped that beauty up quickly. It is great that you found a source for more fabric.

impressive...love how its going together.

thanks Suze (and others).  I'm having 2nd thoughts about the border.  I did a partial mock up in EQ and I don't think I like it.  Any suggestions for alternatives?  At a minimum, the triangles need to be smaller.  It somehow looks too rustic than the center.

Does it look any better if you point them out?

Try placement of colors in the border to match where the colors in the center come to the edge. Try something more simple like just a narrow line of color, or a small square, or square on point.

So I know it's a quilting forum so nobody wants to see non-quilting things on here. Just thought I'd share that I've been busy, but not quilting. I had a friend ask me to make her a bullet journal for the new year, and with that and work, that's keeping me busy! But I'm still alive!

Your bullet journals are pretty cool. Love seeing them on Instagram.
