Another Sashless Quilt

ChainPiecing

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. 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!

  2. 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.
