    I look for your new postings and you were so prolific and fast and when one didn't appear one day, I was disappointed. Now, I will expect to see the finished adorable quilt tomorrow!! (LOL) Seriously, have enjoyed watching them appear and so are so fascinating and personable. I thought of bandana as sashing too in keeping with the farm theme. Congratulations. Well done.

    Great job on your blocks. I would use a single color but maybe a multi color stripe cut on the bias for the binding

    Very wonderful blocks!! A really happy-happy quilt!! Eeyore is my fave!! He's the one who said, "thanks for noticing me". that always cracked me up and my mom too. We used to say that often to each other and would laugh each time. Finally she said i don't know who said that...but was some famous person. So i looked it up and it was Eeyore!

    Very cute!!!!

    Sooo many sashing ideas come to mind. I personally would use a pieced sashing. Something like a storm at sea sashing, or 3 strips with a 9 patch cornerstone. I would try to utilize the various colors of the blocks.

    But I would keep the sashing on the small/narrow side. The idea being to "frame" the blocks, not to over power them. For example, if I were making the 3 strip sashing I would make each strip no more than 1" finished (probably even less).
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    I think a red and white checked sashing would look adorable! It would blend in with that country theme.

    I think a solid or a blender would be nice for the sashing. Maybe a denim look?
    I love the blocks also and I think a denim look for sashing would be great.

    One color for the sashing, but it could have a small design in it. The idea of a bandana print sounds appealing. Can you take them with you to the fabric store...or audition with your stash? Small polka dots or stars would be cute, too. Hope to see it again soon!

    I love your blocks. If it was mine I would do a scrappy frame on each block. Each side a different fabric.

    I would use some color referring to the sex of the baby. Cute blocks.

    The barn and the Dog house with the cat on top are the perfect finish for all the farm animals. Red or dark blue for sashing or maybe the chicken wire fabric in dark blue? This will a very precious quilt!

    Your blocks are totally wonderful! Thinking of a sashing I think I would do a solid border around each block - be it black or red or dark royal blue - then a sashing between them all. I would take a group of them and audition different fabrics if you have a shop in your area with a good selection. The chicken wire sounds like a good idea - but I would need to audition it first.
