WIP Wednesday – Need feedback!

Hey there!  My WIP Wednesday this week has been a busy one, but I need some input for one of my projects. Here she is: 13748159963_df5f7bdb40_zThis is going to eventually be a quilt for our guest bedroom. I am having trouble deciding if I should add sashing between the blocks or to connect them. I know I’d like some sort of wide border around the edges, but in between? I am just not sure yet. What do you think?  The fabric I’m using is Scrumptious by Bonnie & Camille. Love their fabric.

2014-04-06 16.14.34I also completed my April Block  for Amy Gibson’s Sugar Block Club.  I look forward to her messages every month and this month was no different. I am using RK Essex Linen in Natural and a creamy Kona  somewhere in each block so it has that cohesiveness when I put them all together at the end of the year.  I like how my blocks are looking so far.

On a totally non-sewing or quilting note, I am almost done getting my licensing for selling in New York.  Boy, they sure make it hard to start a small business up here. My DBA is being finalized, then I can open up shop again. Behind the scenes I am sewing custom pieces working with some veg-tanned leather to perfect the strap-making process.

There you have my WIP’s! What are y’all up to? Today I am linking up over at Freshly Pieced. Come check it out

  1. I say no sashing. I love the fabric and layout you have created! Your Sugar Blocks look great too! Good luck getting your license.

    • Thanks! Looks like the vote is no sashing, which will be easier in the long run too! Cindy

  2. I agree, no sashing, it already look great. I love Scrumptious fabric line, so fresh and happy 🙂

    • Thanks Min! Bonnie & Camille fabrics are all fresh and happy, huh? I think I have enough scraps from my bundle to make another quilt too! (Well, maybe I’ll have to buy a few more charm packs LOL!)

  3. Agree, no sashing needed!..I really like that essex linen, am off to research, I think I have at least 2 projects that could use it!

    • Essex linen is my FAVORITE material to use. It goes well with everything and always adds a nice touch to my projects. Their yarn-dyed linen is great too!

  4. I agree with the others. Sashing would break up that lovely lattice effect you now have.

  5. Your guest room quilt is divine. Don’t change a thing. The linen you selected is so nice. Will it wash well, when the quilt is finished and laundered? I love it.
