Design Wall Monday

Well, it’s back on the wall
When I sewed in the strips of the sashing fabric – it looked awful!!!  The sashing just screamed at me!  So out it came – I then tried with the light background fabric – but that just ‘hid’ the individuality of the blocks. 
I did change the 7 Sisters block (in the center) and put a light border on it – looks much better. 
010So the next step is to find a darker fabric and maybe do a ‘rail fence’ sashing like the one on this quilt:012
Cross fingers I can find such.
On Friday, I got itchy fingers (something like restless feet) but wanted to do something different, so I pulled out a Joan’s Own pattern from my stash, and put this together:011
It’s all appliqued, and ready for sandwiching and quilting.
Happy designing!             Blessings, Peg
