No, I didn't finish a quilt this week but I have moved two projects forward. I put the borders on the Economy blocks but I'm saving that picture until Monday. What I'm sharing is getting all of the 16 patch sawtooth star blocks finished. And the layout was pretty easy decision.
First, here's what a pile of unfinished Flying Geese blocks looks like. These are ready to be cut in half and then ironed to look like Flying Geese then trimmed with Studio 180 Wing Clipper ruler. Easy peasy to make exactly the right size units.
See below to see what they looked like while I was deciding about putting in a sashing. It definitely looks good with the blue sashing using a nice blue from my stash. I had some red but it just didn't go with the various colors of reds in the blocks. The blue makes it sparkle. Now the question is what size sashing. I'm thinking a 2" finished sashing would work well plus it would make the whole quilt a bit bigger to fit size requirements of Leashes of Valor. (Click on the link to learn more about this program with the motto "One Leash Saves two Lives.") One other question. I have 2 blocks that definitely have beige in the Sawtooth units. My thought is to not try to "match" the locations as shown below. I'm thinking of putting the bottom one in the 3 row down second block in. What do you think?
I'll be working on the blocks probably next week as I have a bit of Halloween embroidering to do. Guess what I bought today!
