You can see that I've got the short sashing done between the blocks and one long sashing strip attached to the bottom of the top row. This of course was the easy part. Now I have to mark the seams on the back of the sashing to match them up with row two. I'm waiting till I have time during the day later in the week for this. I don't like having to think too hard when I sew in the evenings. I was reading an article about the Pantone colour for 2015 and the article mentioned the colours for the last three years. You can see by the tangerine in my blocks that I started this quilt in 2012.
For evening sewing I've got this little project. My larger traditional guild is having a show this Spring, and the small Modern Group which is a part of this guild is putting in a collection. We are each making a "modern" mini or wall hanging . To have the collection fit together we decided to have everyone use a grey solid somewhere in their quilt. I've been playing around with these improv pentagon blocks.
I got the idea from a pillow top Susan posted on the Canadian Abroad blog. Then I found the general directions in 15 minutes of play by Victoria Findley Wolfe. The blocks measure up at 6 1/2 inches and I've only got the two done so far. Not sure if I'll use them both in the quilt but I'm having lots of fun playing with my grey scraps! I'm linking up with Lets Bee Social at Sew Fresh Quilts, to W.I.P. Wednesday at Freshly Pieced, and one day late to Scraptastic Tuesday at She Can Quilt where Leanne is working on similar blocks.
Seeing hers I can see how I can make mine better. I think mine are a bit too square.
