The 365 Challenge task in July was to sew the light blocks to the quilt flimsy.
My flimsy is quite large now, about 72 inches.
Those of you who are familiar with this project know that I have added sashing and some filler blocks.
It certainly didn’t need to be enlarged, so why am I doing this?
From a design perspective, I like the look of the sashing. I like the way that it outlines the blocks.
From a technical perspective, the sashing is keeping all of those block seams from ‘popping’…I know that they are secure until I add another round.
Also, I find that adding the sashing is helping me to keep the quilt square. So many seams…so many pieces…so many opportunities for wavy edges!
I need all of the help that I can get!
I also sewed more 3.5″ dark blocks this month.
I am pretty impressed with myself that I have kept up with this project!
