sewbizgirl, I love your blues! I love your pinks! I love your greens! It all looks so light and fresh. Did you make extra greens so you could double the sashing?

Yeah, poor Ethan looks like a girl lol. I didn't notice it when I posted. Poor thing has the exact same shade as the clock, sure he's not happy I posted this picture heehee.
I don't usually get my tops sewn so fast, but I was in withdrawals from my family coming to visit with the holidays so I spent way more time in the sewing room than usual.
Everyone's updated pics are looking great! Keep'em coming.

Ack! The double sashing was a mistake! I'm so glad you mentioned it as I have not connected my blocks yet... Will have to fix that so I don't have to make a bunch more green/white/black pieces, as well as border pieces. I do like how the extra green in the quilt looks, tho...

I like it too. It's all in whether you want to make twice as many green block.

Pieced and ready to sandwich and quilt...about 1/4 Bonnie's size but perfect size for me. Stuck with original directions except to modify pieced border to smaller size and my wimmzy for pinwheels.

Love the pinwheels and the two sizes of dragonflies, Bonnie did not mention Dragonflies but bet there are some at the Grand Hotel on the island. Emma would know, are there Dragonflies ?

Boy am I glad I posted pics... Haven't sewn anything together so I can put a few blocks without sashings in between these and not have any double rows. Still loving this quilt!

Well, here's one of my blocks. I've got all the blocks sewn together, put the sash on but the border is too small! I'm taking the sash off & see where I went wrong.

Wavewatcher I love your quilt. I should have made 1/2 or 1/4 size this is taking me a long time. I have Dragonflies too, mine have a light purple and a buff background. Yours look better with the black background.

Cindy Love the aqua in your blocks.
