    A new quilt from a member in this group

    There is a member who had posted a picture of this block. I cant remember what her problem was. I think it was to make a smaller block of the picture, she posted. I made a block, in the beginning before , I made this complete quilt top.. My 1st block, was a 13" x 13" block. After I played around with this(her) block, I eventually got a block 12" x12". I layed my blocks out to take a couple pictures. But not sure if to put sashes in between, or sew them all together. Any opinions, I will Name:  001.JPG

    What a beautiful quilt! It sure looks good without the sashing. Which ever you choose it will be perfect! Keep us posted on your choice.

    Don, another beautiful quilt! I actually like the way it looks as you have it layed out. Without sewing the blocks together, it looks like you have narrow sashing between the blocks. I think if you have enough white left, go with a narrow white sashing. The added benefit is that you won't have to match up all those points if you use sashing!

    Wow...that is a lot of work. I like it just as you have laid it out...but then I have not seen it with sashing, so anyway you want to do it will make for a beautiful quilt. You have done such a lovely job of making it.

    Beautiful blocks! Without sashing the blocks create a secondary pattern and with sashing it defines each block. I think it would look beautiful either way!

    Another gorgeous quilt in the making Don. I remember the original post you speak of. I think the poster was looking for the name and to do it in 12" size. I know the block as Goose tracks (have also seen it referenced as Lily and Carolina lily) . the block I know is constructed with set in seams and diamonds instead of HST. But as with so many traditional block patterns there are many ways to get the same look. Your assembly is easier and I love the outcome.

    It's beautiful, Don! I think I'd go with the white sashing.
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    Beautiful ! You did a great job. I would think the size of the quilt would be my choice regarding the sashing. It looks fairly large so if I wanted it to fit a queen or king size bed I would go with the sashing. It will be nice either way.

    I recently had the same problem with a quilt top I was making. An experienced quilter told me to do sashing with cornerstones. I didn't think I would like it, but when I completed the top, I was really happy with the look. If you have more of your cornerstones left, lay a few sashings and cornerstones and see if you like it. I thought it would be too busy for my quilt top, but it really pulled everything together.

    It's a beautiful quilt top and you couldn't go wrong either way. I do lean towards not sashing it however. Have you considered just a narrow boarder around the whole thing? Sure would make for a lot less work if you thought it still needed something to bring it together.

    Nice quilt. A lot of work.
    Depending on the size you want or need I think sashing would pull it together.
    Thanks for sharing.
