I finally got back to my Birthday Gifts Quilt project over the New Year’s long weekend. I trimmed up my 20 blocks to 6″ squares because my unfinished blocks were all over the place from seriously under at 6″ to the right size of 6.5″. I didn’t know how to sew a scant 1/4 inch seam this past spring which would’ve helped the blocks with little tiny pieces end up the right size. But I am happy with how they turned out, and they are the perfect size for a quilt wall-hanging.
And the sashing went fairly smoothly. I like the clean look of it, but if you want to see how blocks like these can look with a two-color sashing and setting triangles, you should take a look at Color Girl Quilts 2015 Summer Blockbuster Quilt. It is awesome!
I’m not sure how I’m going to quilt this. I’d appreciate any suggestions, but keep in my mind that my quilting skills are lagging behind my piecing skills!
