    This was an accident. I was playing around with some stripes of fabric tryting to make a scrappy quilt for DH. I took Rhonda's idea on HTS's and Omak's idea on jelly roll and combimed tthe two and wound up with this design. I didn't know there was any kind of a design until I was laying the blocks out and there it was. I got so excited that I made my whole family come look at it, now I have to show it to you all.
    There is 2 different pic's. I have more blocks than this just so you know. Thank you for looking.

    Lots of motion in the design.

    Very masculine looking.

    Thank You. Even tho my DH has seen it he doesn't know it if for him. I have to do most of my sewing while he is home because little man will bug him instead of me. I'm still in shock that I did this.

    I think either a red (to match the stripe) or a dark blue sashing would be great. But I prefer the red..... :lol: :lol:

    Way to go, you did good. I agree with the others about either a deep red or navy sashing. My favourtie would be the red, but perhaps the navy would be more to your DH's liking. Keep us posted.

    Omg! I love this. I sure hope you can find a dark brown for the sashings, that looks very cool!

    You go girl! I had to look closer when you said you needed sashing. I like the brown!. It makes the other colors and blocks pop.

    You know, that red paisley could be used in a similar fashion (I love that "ugly fabric" of yours) lol. Of course you can do this. No surprise here! Nicely executed - bet the hubs will be excited.

    Thank you. If I had any of that paisley print left I would give it to you but Norbana got it all. There wasn't a whole lot of it, maybe half a yard.
