Another Sashless Quilt


Starting another sashless quilt, based on what I did in the Sunshine and Shadow Quilt Tutorial.  But this one’s for my newest grandson Chris, adopted into our family this past December.  Chris is eleven, so a “baby” quilt just won’t do, but every grandchild has a quilt from me, and soon he will too.

Sashless Quilt in pieces

In pieces, on the pin wall.  Having a pin wall is a real luxury, I think.  Short of a stiff breeze, all the pieces stick there until I’m ready to sew it together (tomorrow).

The rows are marked.  My Spring Break is half over and I still have a few things to get done, as Robert Frost noted:  “And miles to go before I sleep, and miles to go before I sleep.

Another late WIP post, but if you get a chance, head back over to Lee’s Freshly Pieced blog and see what unfinished projects others are working on, plus the beautiful blocks that Lee’s crafting.

  1. That’s going to be a great boy quilt for Chris! There is something wonderful about red, blue and white! And I love the bike fabric too!

  2. That is downright boyish! 🙂 So jealous of your pin wall…. (My auto-correct wanted to make pinwall into pinwale, of which I once made a quilt ironically enough.)

  3. What wonderful colors in that quilt, Elizabeth – just love it! And yes, a design wall is something else. Mine has been upstairs from my work studio, but I’m in the process now of redoing the studio to make room for a wall in it – closer to the work!

  4. you have an adopted grandkid?! how have I not known this yet?! his quilt is looking awesome so far, love it! i love my design wall, although I need to clear the floor in front of it so I can get to it easier. ha.
