    Hi all,
    Well, here is the quilt with the applique finished and the sashing and border on it...I chose to applique using colors that coordinated with each piece, so some of the stitching doesn't really show up...hindsight says I think I may have liked it if I had gone ahead with my test block, and done it in black or gray...but not taking it all out now!!! Just a lesson learned...The plaid sashing wasn't really too hard to make sure it was straight, the fabric itself was pretty much right on, I starched it before I cut it, and used the actual colored lines as cutting and sewing lines...I know that the stripes don't match up where the sashing intersects..and I considered re-doing it...but, really thinking since the lines are not all "catywampus" that is what I really wanted to be ok.
    Now I am wondering whether I should add another border, like red, green, or blue...or leave well enough alone! :?: ..The narrow yellow orange strip will be the binding...thanks again for all the ideas and input!!..
    Going to go and see how hard it will be to get the sashing lines to match at intersections now...sigh...argh...lol

    Looks great, the plaid looks like roads for the vehicles to follow.

    I think I have some of that plaid fabric. It's perfect on your quilt. I love that red for an outer border, with maybe a narrow inner border of the gold if you have enough to use for that and the binding. Or if the quilt is already large enough, it's fine as-is. I love your designs, especially that tractor.

    Thanks, I can't take credit for the designs..just finding them...some of them are from fatcatpatterns.com from Sindy Rodenmayer. The others are free color book pages I googled and adapted over to the fabrics...

    What a great quilt. I've never thought of using a plaid for sashing. It really works on this one. I also like the idea of a narrow gold inner border and the red for outer border.
    Well done.

    I like the red border with the yellow orange binding.

    The composition of your quilt, the balance are just right......no more border(s), I think.
