sewing blocks into rows

All the blocks were finished for this 2015 Block of the Month quilt, so I cut some sashing and started sewing the rows together.
There is still one more row to go.

Here is a close up of the sashing fabric. You can hardly see in in the first photo because it's so close to the color of the carpet.
This might be one of those times that I am making a bad color choice (the sashing), but I like the sharp contrast with the black floral fabric.
well, there will be no turning back now!

My husband gets antsy when it snows and has a strong urge to get out of the driveway (to see if he can). He thought we should go out to see a movie when the forecast was saying to expect 5 to 8 inches of snow.

I discouraged that idea and we just had a movie day at home...

I'm not sure how I'll keep him in the house for the next day or two!


  1. Your block of the month quilt look good. The sashing makes it look like the blocks are floating. My DH also get antsy when forced by the weather to stay inside.

    1. Thank you Charlene, for your nice comment on my quilt!
      If we could just get these husbands to take up quilting...they would be happy to stay inside and sew when it's snowing!

  2. I like how you framed your blocks...nice setting idea. My husband also gets antsy when there is snow on the driveway. You should see what happens when it is 40 inches, instead of 5-8! Thank you for sharing quilt pictures.

  3. Thanks so much for the compliment, Lorrie!

    My gosh! 40 inches of snow! No way we could handle that!
