Happily I managed to make twelve wonky log cabin blocks from my Spring Fever jelly roll. It’s amazing how quickly those blocks went together. I so rarely sew anything that doesn’t require a lot of accurate point matching up that it was like a breath of fresh air to sew these blocks. They are going to make a great quilt for a little girl.
Which gets me onto the next problem…my twelve blocks are too small for a quilt – so as I talked about last week, I’m thinking sashing and borders and that should pretty much get me up to a decent usable size. I’ve been rootling around in the stash and auditioning fabrics and I’ve finally come down to two possibilities – I figure I can use one for the sashing/borders and the other for the back – I think I should have enough of either.
So what do you think? Lighter pink with spots, or dark pink with a green pattern in-between? Both work pretty well with the blocks, but the light pink is more subdued.
I’d love to know what you think. So come on girls, give it to me straight!
