Default Scrappy floral top with black sashing finished

Here it is in black. Just finished a few minutes ago.sm-black-sashing-floral-scrappy.jpg

I posted the one with the white sashing here...http://www.quiltingboard.com/picture...d-t241167.html

As I mentioned before, I wanted something that didn't require much thinking or checking the pattern, as I am trying to watch the Olympics--as much as I can--and unlike some of you, I seem to be unable to follow a movie while sewing--neither gets done well, if I try--.

I had prepared and located some 3.5" strips for the last one and still had a lot leftover after I finished that one. Now, I have much fewer left--but probably enough for yet another one--but the scraps left aren't as pretty.

This time I used black as sashing--it is a kind of satiny fabric, but not too slippery.

The fabric store that sometimes/usually has black in stock doesn't have any now. Two weeks ago she (the worker--there is one employee and the owner, who isn't usually there--) told me to check back in two weeks. I called today and she said call again on Wed. and maybe they'll have it in stock on Monday.

Anyway, I looked around and found out I had been donated this black fabric--it's beautiful, a little shiny and I'm unsure what the content is, but it is really nice. I hadn't been sure how it would wash, so when it was donated (from a really nice clothing company), I washed it and it came through fine--I was afraid of spotting or wrinkling--.

It ended up not being slippery to work with and when I had to rip out some seams, it was fine and didn't seem to leave holes. I did put in a fresh, size 70 needle, so a bit smaller than the typical 90 I normally use.
Here is the 6.5" block:block-using-black-sashing.jpg
and here is the layout from EQ6. scrappy-floral-black-sashing.jpg

Exact dimensions for anyone interested are in the other thread. EQ 6 said it took 5 3/4 yards of the black if you calculate 40" of usable fabric.

It is 99" square.

Both are great tops but I think my favourite is the black sashing. Why, just easier to keep clean.

I find it absolutely remarkable the amount of quilts you complete. Amazing, all are beautiful.

I'm sure it comes from having only one at home after having 5. Feels like I have LOTS of time!

Girl, do you have fans by your sewing machine so it doesn't overheat?? I am amazed also at the beautiful quilts you just crank out day after day. Unique and so beautiful. Keep sharing them with us!!
