What's up

My goal for today is to try to finish my nested churn dash quilt. 
But I'm not sure if that's going to happen. I had to have my friend Mary help me this weekend to figure out how to put the blocks together. I was just puzzled how I would do it, you would think after working on it for so long I would have it all planned out to the end. 

But no! We decided to go with a dark sashing and yellow cornerstones.  But that's as far as I got, now I have to decide what am I going to do for the outside.

Will I continue with the dark all the way around 

or will I go with a lighter fabric all the way around.
I know what I want for the binding. I'm going to do a scrappy binding. Now if there's anyone out there have any ideas of what they would do, I would love to hear them because I am auditioning at this time.
I would really love to get this done this week and check it off my list.

While deciding I am going to finish this lap quilt that I had blocks leftover from ones made years ago.  I need to make one more basket block.
I will donate this one when I'm done.

and What a Hoot!


  1. How about a small grey strip, followed by a small yellow strip, and finished by a bigger darker grey strip?

  2. I really like the gray against the blocks - it finishes the idea of the sashing. Then yellow again after that - either like Charlene pictures, or as a wide last border that can have some fun quilting in it.

  3. Dear Kat,
    I really like the grey stripe too, so as far as your votings go, it is a pretty easy decision. Love your projects, the church dash looks awesome.

  4. I agree with the grey first then a yellow before the final gray.


Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
