Last Saturday I spent the day setting these blocks with sashing, putting borders on. The fabric has a cowboy print, so I call it the Cowboy Quilt (real original). Saturday night I spent the evening taking off the borders and ripping out all the sashing because I hated it. Sunday I re-set the blocks with new sashing and corner blocks and sewed the borders back on. Better. Here’s a shot of the work. (I like to keep my hands busy while I listen to Conference.)The limiting factors were that I’d bought the fabric in La Platte Maryland and Material Girls when I was there visiting and there was No More Cowboy Fabric in my stash. The second limiting factor was I was determined to use what I had–no purchases. I have some interesting cowgirl fabric for the back–it will be scrappy.
Since it is the Cherry Blossom Festival time in Washington, D.C. (we lived there for a year), here’s some of my shots.
These pinks are the color of my granddaughters’ cheeks. No wonder I like this color so much!
