Time flies when you're working hard! I seem to have dealt with most of my immediate deadlines, so I've earnt some time in the sewing room this weekend.
I never showed a picture of my cross-blocks quilt with the borders on; I really want to get this quilted soon, so it can go on my bed this winter. I love the dark sashings,, it really frames the blocks.
I'm steadily sewing together the Doors and Windows blocks, and they are looking good.
Finally I made a decision on the sashing for the grey quilt. I need to come up with a name for this, I don't even know what the block is called. I went with a darker brown, everything else seemed too wishy-washy. The measurements for the setting triangles are crazy, I'm still trying to get them perfect, but this is close enough for a start. If all else fails I will paper piece them, but I'm sure I'll get used to cutting in sixteenths. I need better eyesight is what I need!
And once I have the blocks together, there are those multiple pieced borders to tackle. This quilt is certainly going to take some time, but it will be out of the ordinary.It's just the opposite of the Doors and Windows, but I think they are like an antidote to each other. They balance each other in the long run.
