    Pinwheel quilt?

    Soooo... I have all my blocks for a big pinwheel quilt made. I made a few extra too. LOL. I used the Vintage Modern Layer Cake... I did not use charms. I made BIG Pinwheels, and I love them! Here's the thing, The magazine called for white or cream sashing, and my white in my block is Robert Kaufman Snow... I think for my sashing I want to use another color... Pale yellow? Or green? Not sure. It's a very Summer quilt. The layer cake had more reds and teals, and since the blocks are big, my white is pretty big too... would you stay with the white? Or go with a subdued color in the fabric line? I will be using a print in the line for my border... it's just the sashing I am trying to see in my minds eye.

    I think I got it! Whew... sometimes all it takes is to take a look from the outside in to gain your perspective back!

    I wish I did not have to order my fabrics for my sashing and borders. I could finish this quilt by the end of the week! ... Oh well.

      T - is it TRUE?
      H - is it HELPFUL?
      I - is it INSPIRING?
      N - is it NECESSARY?
      K - is it KIND?

                  Kensington, what did you end up choosing for the sashing?

                    I really need to get off the exclamation point.

                      I know, I was talking to myself really fast! Ha!

                      If you are familiar with the Vintage Modern line, it has a grey that has the cream scroll in it... I think I am going to order that. And the floral with the grey background for the border.

                      I just thought it's a queen size and my pinwheels are the vintage modern w/white. So It just seemed so much white. I think the pale grey w/white sashing and floral border will be nice.

                      Pics of the pinwheels or the sashing and border fabrics? UGH... I did not take pics of my blocks before picking them all up again.
