F2F2–assembly has begun

Title says it all.  And photos to prove it.

I haven’t decided on block layout yet, but I have decided on fabrics.  That splodgy one on the right, will be my backing fabric.  It contains a little pink, which wasn’t one of my chosen colours, but also has 2 shades of blue, bright green and orange on white.  I thought it would be rather fun for the reverse of my quilt.

For the time being, I’m sashing all blocks with orange.  I was going to sash in white, but then there was a mix-up with my recent fabric order (was sent white linen instead of white cotton).  I could have waited to get that sorted out, but laid blocks on the orange and decided I rather liked the effect.

Here are a selection of blocks already sashed.  One from each of the participants, plus one from Avis.  I think the orange sets blocks off nicely.  So . . . more orange sashing to do, before I get to the next stage (which I dread) of quilting.

  1. I think it was fate that you were sent the wrong white fabric – the orange looks amazing.
    Are you going to quilt the whole thing then, not QAYG? Bon courage 😉

  2. Orange is a great choice! This is going to be a wonderfully vibrant and eclectic quilt, and I applaud you for starting the assembly when so many of the rest of us are still looking at our box of blocks and putting it back in the Later basket!
