    I found my 13" 1st block of the quilt, I posted a picture of earlier today. I more or less decided not to go with sashes. I didnt really have enough of the background material of this quilt. So I got it sewed all together, with in the last 1/2 hr. So here are 2 pictures. For the border, not sure of. I've got alot of 2" sq's, I've been cutting out, and lots of triangles, also. Everyone, take care, and WELCOME to the new members. Don-isewmanName:  002.JPG

    Beautiful quilt...you did a fantastic job.
    Families are like old quilts....although they tend to unravel at times...each can be stitched back together with love.

    Don, I love your quilt. Am I blind or is that first block missing from the quilt? I have looked and looked and cannot find it. Tell me I'm not blind.

    Love the quilt. It reminds me of those pictures with the optical illusions where you see one thing and you blink and see another. In the center, it looks like Arrows. On the sides, it looks like leaves. It is really cool!

    Don, I think you did the right thing by omitting the sashing. The way the block is constructed, it looks like it has sashing already. I think sashing might have taken away from the overall quilt. It looks fabulous. I like it.

    The block looks beautiful all put together.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    Very nice. I'm glad you left the sashing out, you would have lost the secondary pattern.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.
