    Update on "Need some opinions please..."

    A couple days ago, I posted a thread asking if I should add sashing and cornerstones to my grandma's quilt. Thank you everyone for your quick response. I went ahead and did sashing, but was unable to figure out how to do the cornerstones... The blocks are 25" and I don't have a ruler or cutting mat that large... It would have looked better with them, but I think it still looks ok. Now to get it sandwiched and quilted. :-)

    I saw your original post & thought it was fine as it was. But now that I see the finished top I like it so much better with the sashings that you added!

    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - Diet Dr. Pepper in one hand - chocolate in the other - body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO-HOO, what a ride!!"

    Looks beautiful. Cornerstones wouldn't have made it nicer.
