Seriously, I need a better name for this quilt. Any suggestions? School Yard Sampler? Come on, guys. A little help, please?
We have this week "off" from our Beginner's Patchwork Class at Pippablue to allow students to catch up on their unfinished blocks and me to get to sashing, layering and quilting under control so I am prepared for the next class. It has been a welcome break. Not away from the students; I like them for their sense of humor and enthusiasm to learn. I just needed the time to get my mind re-focused on the project. Anyway, want to see what the top looks like?
Well, really it spent most of our photo shoot looking like this:
Either way, you get the idea. I have to say, I like the sashing much better in this photo as compared to real life. The orange isn't quite a true, rich orange as compared to the colors in the blocks. It is a little softer and more subdued. Still, it's a great color. Ah, I am going back and forth with it. There is so much going on in the blocks nothing looked quite right so I took my best guess.
Off to layer and quilt. I am going to stitch this as quickly as possible while I am still on my Cúchulainn quilting high.
