Decisions, Decisions.........

Thanks to everyone for the input on my Baltimore quilt. The responses couldn't be more varied and I appreciate all the suggestions.

I don't think I've ever agonized this much over a setting before. My problem wasn't so much that I couldn't think of what to do, but that everything sounded like a good idea to me. I really liked the idea of no sashing and having the blocks "float". But I really liked the idea of sashing too. And I liked plain sashing and pieced sashing.

Finally I just made myself pick one! And this is what I've done so far. And I like it, even though I know I would have liked no sashing just as much. That would have been an entirely different look. Maybe I'll have to make another???



So now I still have to make the border decisions. I've come up with a couple more ideas there so will let that percolate over night at least.


Quick supper tonight and a meatless one. We love spinach/pepper and feta pizzas. So easy with store bought crusts (almost as easy to make your own but I didn't this time), creamed spinach and lots of chopped and sauteed onions and peppers.





I think they've cooled enough I'm going to go eat some.
Thanks again for the advice everybody!

Beautiful, you've taken my breath away....again. I think you made the right choice but I liked it without the sashing too so maybe you should make another one! It is lovely. I can't wait to see how you're going to finish it...hugs, Linda

I like it with the sashing, a good color choice too. Having each block framed like this really lends it's self to echo quilting...please refer to the e-mail I sent you a little bit ago LOL.
