    My DGD was recently in a Ballet recital called Snow White and the Seven Giants. So I found a panel from Snow White that I wanted to do something out of for her. The original plan was to make a dance bag but the center panel was TOO TALL for an adult, never mind an 8 year old.

    So I started playing around with fabrics to make her a lap quilt out of it. Of course I have to "build" the sides and top to fit the center panel. Right now I am trying to decide what to use for the "sashing" pieces to bring it all together.

    I have included a few choices that I have on hand, but I do have others that might work as well. So, any ideas? Dark green? Burgundy? Another pink? Combination of them with Flying Geese? I'm stumped.....

    White might work as well, but whatever you do it's going to be a treasure. I really like what you have so far.

    I hadn't thought of using white. That might be a really good choice. Hmmmmmm, need to go check my stash.

    I don't know why but I really like the burgundy. It is a nice contrast to the lighter colors. It is already beautiful and will be a special reminder of the time the two of you spent together during the recital. I look forward to seeing the finished product.

    What about a thin first sash of that lovely green, a slightly wider one of pink and then white?
    I personally believe that flying geese will detract from the blocks. The blocks seem to work quite well with the scenes. I love that, please show us the final quilt.

    I may play with that on the design wall as soon as I find some white that doesn't have snowflakes on it! Or snowmen!! Where is my tone on tone?

    I vote for the burgundy or dark green for the sashing. Either way it is going to be lovely. She is going to love it.

    Thanks, hope so! I'm thinking that I may let her help me finish it since she sews. Might make it even more special for her!

    Burgandy or dark green would be my choice. Letting her help you sew will be oh so special.

    What about making the sashing with patchwork of maybe 2 1/2" squares of white, pinks, & greens? I would integrate a lot more white squares into it than the other colors. That's just a thought. I do like white with it.
