I'm not participating this year, but I will have to peek in every once in a while and see what's going on. Sounds like it will be a lot of fun! The quilt alongs are a great idea!


I know, sad she won't be swapping, maybe a quiltalong, we shall see.

Our previous swappers who are sitting this year out are invited to lurk and join in on the quiltalongs! It's a good way to get that candy stash used up so you can swap again next time.

This one is put together, sort of. I'm debating if I should add a solid border or go with yellow, red, green, purple, blue, pink, teal, orange and brown squares around the outside....or just leave it as it is. Opinions please??????

Your sashing could really have overpowered the quilt but with the colors you used, it doesn't seem to have done that. But what to do next? I haven't a clue. Will be anxious to see what you come up with. Nice job! (Hope your hand is improving daily.)

I think it would look nice with a multi-color border. Very pretty top.

That is so beautiful, Jan! Love the storm at sea sashing. My gut feeling is that if you use too much color in a border your SAS will recede into the background... but I may be wrong. I think I would just put a narrow binding on that and call it perfect. Or... maybe a little more white (narrow border) and then the colored binding.

Jaba- very pretty! Imho, I'd just add a colored binding. That way a border doesn't detract from the pretty blocks~

I see it finished in a white narrow binding, no sashing needed because it may distract the eye from the wonderful design. IMHO. Do what you think best!
hugs,
