Wow but it was so colorful I decided I needed to tone it down with the royal blue and gray, much better. My blue sashings are cut 1.25" wide, I did have to fill in with a larger size on some of the rows to make them all come out the same size. The gray is cut 2" between the blocks and then the long strips are cut 1.25". I was flying by the seat of my pants with this one making it up as I went, so in the end it was too close to being square and I don't care for square quilts unless they are to be on the wall. So I added 3.5" blue top and bottom borders. I have enough blue to bind it. I don't remember the exact measurements but around 59x 65 I think. It's all folded up and I am too lazy to go measure!
I finished the neutral strings flimsy on New Year's Eve day-so a last finish for 2014. The inspiration for this quilt came from Quilting is more fun than housework. I didn't realize it was Cynthia's quilt when I saw it on Pintrest. I was just over to her blog looking through her gallery, so I had to come back here and edit to give her credit!! Thanks Cynthia!
Now I am trying to figure out some projects I want to take on quilt retreat coming up in a few weeks. So many I could do but which do I really want to take.
You will have to check out the Linky parties on the left side bar this week for some quilty goodness!
