    Man, I'm drawing a complete blank on this quilt. Ok kids, we talked about sashing. I layed these down before sewing. What do ya think? Is this what we had in mind???????

    Note....... I wanna thank everyone for their ideas..... It was one of those quilts that I just hate the sec i started it..... I tore out what i did so far and will just do a scrappy blocks one...... As soon as i "feel" like starting it, I'll let ya all know how its coming along.

    I like the plaid sashing around the picture block, but not so much around the plaid. Maybe a solid?

    Yep I agree with Julie, it get 'lost' as it is too similar to the block :D

    I agree. And, if you have enough fabric, maybe use the same fabric all the way around each block instead of two different ones. It is starting to get really busy!!

    That is looking good Bev.

    Do you have any more squares that you haven't put sashing around? If so, you could put sashing at the top and the bottom then sew them to these blocks you have done then you would only have 1 sashing between yours blocks. I'll see if I can come up with a picture.

    Hopefully I explained myself.

    Yours will definitely look better than what I layed out here. I was just trying to give you an idea of the concept.

    I'm thinking of ripping out what I did and go with this quilt I found on Webshots. I think it'll go together better with what I have.

    Oh, Bev. I didn't mean to frustrate or discourage you. I think it is looking really good. You are making it for your hubby and he will like it no matter what if only because you did it for him.

    If you decide to change plans (I've done this more than once) you may not have to take it all apart. Could you press it then cut it similar to how you would when you strip piece?
