Judy ~ Partial Reveal


All the blocks have been successfully washed with no trace of the blue and no running colors. Yay! Pressing the blocks has fixed the wonkiness, much to my relief. Half of the blocks are sashed, and I hope to get to the rest soon, but right now we are off for a walk and then headed across town to see our little Max. Till next time, happy stitching!  (PS Today is our oldest grandson's eighth birthday. Where did those years go?)

Very pretty and feminine - love the pink sashing.

Thank goodness for small miracles! I've been holding my breath on those blue lines!

This is going to be the best SBS quilt ever!

Sorry to be late in responding, but we just got home. It's been a crazy weekend. Yesterday we saw Max and today we went to a concert at church with friends and then out to dinner. Anyhow, thanks so much for your sweet comments. Last night I did another row.......one more left and I can put the whole panel together.

That is so precious, Judy! Butterfly row. =) What a treasure! I'm so glad your blue lines came out. I thought they would, but you just never know. Almost to the finish line!

Thanks, Susan. Sue seems to attract birds and butterflies; actually I think there's a birdie in the first block on the left. I sewed some more yesterday and now have it almost all sashed. I'm trying to decide whether to put in another darker sashing before the border print. We'll see. Any opinions?

Debra Spincic said...

Show us what you have and we can visualize better. I always like to give opinions!! Ha! ha!

I could easily see it with a darker pink, maybe a raspberry? And then the lighter for the final border. Narrow. 1/2-1", no more, I think. Maybe even using that for binding, too?

I'm so pleased that all those blue lines came out with no trouble. The pink sashing is perfect. Personally I don't think it needs anything more, other than a thin white binding for the outside edge (no wider than half an inch perhaps) which will 'hold' it all together nicely.

I tried to post yesterday but having trouble with computer sorry I am late.
I love what you have done with the Sunbonnet Sue block, so happy the blue all came out.

This is coming together nicely! The sashing is perfect; it sets off the blocks so well!
