A Little Change

You all know that I L-O-V-E the Cheddar Broken Dishes quilt but as much as I've tried, I find that I'm just not 'loving' the white sashing.  In my mind's eye, the two just contradict one another.


So what I've decided to do is make my sashing out of a medium-to-dark blue Civil War or reproduction print.  I know I'll be more happy with it that way.


Happy stitching!

It will be gorgeous, Kaaren. I'm glad to have you back posting even if its short! Take care.

I agree about the white and I think your choice of a blue would be perfect.

I agree with you Polly. Can't wait to see an audition. I am so far behind in everything I need to finish that I am trying not to take on anything new but this quilt pattern just keeps tugging at me. Wonder which will win, finish or begin? Happy Days.

Look forward to seeing how the blue compliments the cheddar!! I bet it will be stunning!!

I agree! I didn't like the white at all, looks odd to me. Blue would be beautiful!

Sounds great to me.

Can't wait to see! That quilt also caught my eye.....of course, I have one or two projects I absolutely need to finish first. Quilting vicariously through you :)

too funny, Kaaren, I thought the same thing about the white, and have gone thru my stash to find the right shade of darker blue. Great minds think alike :) Excited to get started.

And it will be fantastic!

I agree! The white is way too much contrast... looking forward to seeing progress on yours.... in fact, you may have just put the buzz in my ear to try one too... perhaps with chocolate brown sashing? Hmmmmmm...

Funny...today at the NYS Fair I saw one done in 1904 with no sashing. It was wonderful. I'll try to email a picture of it I took with my phone. Margie/NY margie0519@msn.com
