I am working, albeit slowly, on the dreaded pineapple blocks now. Then it will be time to put the blocks all together. Just wondering if you all waited until the blocks were done to decide on sashing, or did you know what you were going to use from the beginning? My blocks together are looking rather dark, so I am thinking about a lighter cream for sashing.

Love your blocks!! I would audition several fabrics to find out which color would be best for sashings.

I knew I wanted pink so I didn't have a problem picking them.

Beautiful Mkotch....can't wait to see it the completed top. I agree with Anael...audition your options. Lighter sashing will make the individual blocks stand out more and darker would give it a very dramatic look. I could go either way with your colorway. Will look very cool, regardless.

I'm taking my Long Time Gone to the long armer tomorrow! I decided on a light cream sashing and think it sets the blocks off very well. I used two plain borders, one cream and one print, because I thought it was busy and dark enough. Will post a photo when it returns in a few weeks. Now I'm working on smaller, less intense projects although I have Kingwell's "Quilt Lovely" book on order. I guess I'm hooked!

Yea, Mkotch! Congrats on finishing your first Kingwell project. Your sashing sounds really pretty to showcase your gorgeous blocks. Can't wait to see it. Enjoy the Quilt Lovely book. I have sticky notes sticking out of mine with the projects I want to sew...lol... I'm thinking of one of the quilts and using Tilda fabrics. I've got 2 FQ bundles of Tilda collections I think would be cool to use on a Kingwell.

Gorgeous, Anael. So happy you spent time quilting that beauty... Deserves to be out and displayed.

Looks like your kitty has other ideas about your next project. Time to make a cat pillow for her. Lol... She's beautiful and very spoiled...

I'm looking forward to seeing your completed quilt Mkotch!

And Anael..your quilt is lovely...as I said earlier...bright and clear colors..love them. I think kitty needs to rest and maybe a cuddle or two

Teen I'm looking up Tilda's fabrics to get an idea of what they are like as I have not heard of her before---oh they are so soft looking without being pale; bright, but not garish! Lovely indeed!
