It's been a productive day! I cut the sashing and cornerstones for the Summer Sampler quilt and sewed it on; tomorrow I'll finish up the quilt top with cutting and sewing my borders. I also want to piece my quilt back. Once that's all done, it's off to the LQS....
I didn't originally plan on sashing these blocks; I was going to alternate each pieced block with a filler block of coordinating fabric. But when I laid it out the filler blocks were just too dominant, so I quartered and trimmed each filler block into sashing. I am so happy with the way it turned out!
On a different note, I was in a thrift store today. I like to see what they have in the line of pre-loved quilts and afghans, if anything. It's not too often I'll actually find a quilt in there, but I walked out of there today with an eight-dollar orange and white tied Rail Fence quilt. It reminds me of a Creamsicle! I love the bright, cheery colours.
