So I've been working on these quilt blocks since JANUARY. Blocks are made. Then I spent most of a weekend retreat making sashing pieces. I finally got the chance to set some of this assemblage up on my design wall and I'm not sure what I think.
The sashing seems kind of.........assertive.
I had this quilt in my mind as mostly blacks and tans. Originally the idea for sashing was that it would be tan and darker tan. But somehow when I cut the pieces, it was the oranges I reached for. (The blank squares will hold more yet-to-be-made ninepatches.)
I've seen some really successful quilts where the sashing was a bit dominant. Is this going to be one of those quilts, or should this sashing be saved for Another Quilt?
