I had some sewing time yesterday and got the sashing on all 60 blocks of the Coleslaw quilt. However, I didn't get the rows sewn together as I still need to cut the outside setting triangles and by the time I thought to do that my brain was mushy. I'll cut them tomorrow.
I am loving it. It is turning out just as I envisioned. The sashing has made it quite yellow and you know yellow makes me very very very happy! After I get the setting triangles cut and the rows sewn together, I'm planning on an additional inner yellow border, and then the outer border will be the cabbage fabric and I want to bind it in the same fabric as the cornerstones.
And in continued saga of great Phillip Jacobs fabric for SNW I have these two wonderful fabrics in my sewing room. This first one is Cactus Dahlias in Blue.
And this is Moon Flower in the Sky colorway.
The flowers are HUGE... the Cactus Dahlias are about 8" across and the Moon Flowers are 7". Now both of the beautiful fabrics belong to my BFF Stephie. Stephie is going to have to surgery on her shoulder in a few weeks and while I don't think she could cut the fabrics I think she can push them through the sewing machine. I'm going to stack and whack them for her. She want triangles out of the Moonflowers and something with 8 repeats with the Cactus Dahlias. I'm thinking maybe the diamond for the Lemoyne Star or there is another 8 repeat I did that I need to find my pattern for but it is an elongated triangle that makes a block like a Mexican tile. Very pretty.
So I have my work cut out for me this week (ohhh... bad bad pun). I want to get the Coleslaw quilt assembled so I can hand it off to my long arm quilter at the next guild meeting. And I have a project to help with for my younger son. Looks like I need to get off the computer and get to work!
