Flowers Sashing Solution

 I decided on  homespuns for my half square triangle sashing. The colors in the photo aren't very good but my dark colors are red and blue and I snuck a few greens in too.
I'm happy with my choice and it seems to go really well with my homespun applique backgrounds. 

I've got them all made in 2 sizes, and will trim them and add them as I finish the blocks.

So, what do you think?

  6. I think it is just right. The combination of colors--in homespun (nice prim touch)--seems to have brought it all to life. The blocks were great before and now they are marvelous! : )

  15. Hi like your sashings for the blocks.

    And I think the bird you found in your car was waiting for the flowers to come out and wanted to be included on that quilt.

  31. Hi Lori, Looks fantastic with the homespuns, really suits the quilt blocks.

  32. I like that you grouped several of the same color HSTs together so your eye sort of travels around and to the block and doesn't jump around. I don't think you can ever go wrong with half square triangles, and I love your blocks.

  33. Perfect choice Lori, i love hst's too, they complement your delightful applique blocks. I love the look of naive prim :))) cheers... Marian
