WIP Wednesday

It's so hard to believe that it's Wednesday again already.  I feel like I find myself saying that more and more lately.  Time is speeding up and even though some of the days are really long the weeks themselves seem really short.  I haven't had a whole lot of time for sewing this week.  But I did manage to work on a few more APQ Quiltalong Blocks.

I was chain piecing these last few blocks and posed the question on Instagram if I should add sashing to these blocks like the pattern calls for.  The overwhelming response was to forgo the sashing.  So I am leaning in that direction.  My quilting friends are all really smart when it comes to these things and I don't think they would steer me in the wrong direction.  

My goal was to finish this top before I left for my trip but with Bertha going into the shop on Saturday I really doubt I will make it that far.  I am hoping to at least finish up my last two blocks before I leave.  Speaking of finishing something-I actually have a finish to share with you this week so look for that coming soon.

I guess that is all I have going on over here.  Be sure to head over to Lee's and check out what everyone else is up to for some great inspiration.

  1. Very pretty blocks! About the sashing v. no sashing dilemma, you may want sashing to simplify joining the blocks together so you don't have to match up all those seams. You can make the sashing very narrow (the width of the tiniest patches in your block). If you use white it will "float" your blocks against the background. If you add contrasting corner posts they will make chains on the diagonal across your quilt top.


I love comments! Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts.
