Do you remember these?
|This photo is a very true color.|
I posted a while back about using these vintage blocks here.
In my search for the perfect sashing fabric, I came across the holy grail of vintage fabrics--right in my own stash!!
|Selvage to selvage|
...and the most perfect color too...
This helped to organize the chaos of the patchwork. I have to have organized scrappy.
I didn't want to put cornerstones in the sashing because that would throw another scrap into the mix I had just tamed. Here is what I do when you have to add a length of sashing between rows of blocks.
I press a mark at each intersection as if I had a cornerstone.
Then I pin the mark to the seam on the opposing row I am attaching, just like you would if were matching seams.
This makes a nice even grid without corner stones.
Ok, I am done for tonight. Tomorrow, I will put another blue/green (I wonder what they called that color?) border around this 12 block section and then think about what I will do next.
I have to come up with a plan to use some of these other blocks on the back.
I'm sure it will come to me in the middle of the night!
