Again, I changed my mind on this quilt. The last time we spoke I had said I was going to add some sashing between the blocks to take away from the busyness. While I was working along, I thought I kind of liked the busyness and the way a neutral 'whirlygiggle' is formed at the corners of the blocks. So I went with this instead and will add a nice wide border around the edge to balance it all out.
This was a lot more work than I thought it would be, but I learned things, so that made it worth it. I still didn't use a whole lot of pins, but I did iron the heck out of each and every seam. That really makes so much difference in the final product. Now to decide whether I should quilt it in the ditch or go with old faithful, free motion. Any thoughts?
