Today, Mary T came over to finish up her quilt top. As we laid out the blocks, we were both disappointed with how they looked.....there was simply not enough contrast between the background fabric and the accent fabrics. Here is what we saw......
After a bit of playing around with the blocks, we came up with the idea of putting a small (1 inch) sashing between the blocks, and that made all of the difference!!!
Here is Mary, hard at work!!!!
She left today with just one border left to do and then she will come back on Monday for instructions in how to hand quilt....should be a short lesson since I only know about 10 minutes worth of tips!!!
