Ok so I recently got the paper doll fabric in the mail, I went to Joann's today and picked out a few fabrics that I liked to go along with them. I have a pattern in my mind but here is my delima!
I am wanting to make a quilt SIMILAR to this,
***copyrighted image deleted****
BUT these are the fabric that I chose plus a cream colored fabric that I am going to use to make the doll blocks with,
I have all 19 dolls which I would like to make 19 blocks out of and then I would like to make the 20th block (so it is symmetrical I am kinda ocd about it) into a "closet" for the clothes and toys using the wood grain fabric. I would like to use to stripe fabric as the sashing and use the pink and yellow to make pin wheels instead of the little blocks or leave the blocks out all together. Then I know for sure I want the outside border to be pink and yellow pinwheels instead of a normal fabric border! then the binding will be the stripes!
SO.....after all that is said, when I am using stripes to make sashing which direction should the lines go? do they all go one way? or do I cut them all one way and then just piece them on top, bottom, left, right with some being vert. and some being horiz.
Help!!! PLEASE. I have only ever used stripes ONCE and it was for binding!
