I've slowed down on this quilt. I know I can't finish it by the time I was hoping to...so I'm just going to slow down and enjoy the process.
This is one of the finished blocks...laying on the brown fabric that I was going to use for sashing.
I kept thinking that the brown wasn't exactly what I wanted, so I rummaged around and pulled out some fabric that I was saving for another quilt to see how that would look. It's the one on the left...a darker brown. Then on the right is a black and brown check.
I thought the darker sashing looked the best...until I took away the others...then I thought it looked dull.
So I tried it with a medium dark blue. I like that, but what I first liked about the quilt that I am basing this one on, was the rich warm browns.
I'll keep thinking it over while I finish sewing blocks.
If anyone has an opinion...blue or brown...just chime in!
