Design Wall Monday

Almost half of my "Farmer's Wife" quilt is sashed. Watching it come together is addictive!

One row is missing, it's at the sewing machine waiting for sashing.

When I get all the rows sashed, I will have to decide on a fabric for the setting triangles. The cornerstones are a pale, sage green. So far the vote is for the setting triangles to be the same fabric, but I'll post some choices and ask for input.

Remember the gorgeous yarn My Little Sailor sent for Mother's Day? Here is my current manicure, which compliments the Shawlcowl perfectly!

  1. Farmers Wife is looking fabulous - did you stick with the same layout as in the pattern??
    Pretty blue colour on your nails...

  2. The sashing really make the blocks pop. Can't wait to see it with all of the sashing. Love the nail color too!

  3. I agree your farmer's wife is looking fabulous.

  4. Amazing what sashing does for what could otherwise look like a random smattering of blocks. Can't believe how quickly you are getting it together, you are a speedy sasher!

  5. As a relatively new follower, I want to know how long you've been working on those blocks! It's going to be a gorgeous quilt.

  6. Oh man, this is going to be soooo gorgeous!! It is amazing what sashing does to a quilt, your blocks are amazing and that sashing just sets them off! Beautifully done :)

  7. I love the sashimg and how it is coming together. Beautiful!
