Sashing, Now you see it, Now you don’t 1, 2

While working on quilt designs I often recolour sashing, but sometimes miss some pieces. One day I liked the way the sashing was sometimes the same colour of the background of the blocks, and so invisible unless you could see the seam lines, with other parts of the sashing in a contrast colour defining areas of the design. I decided to try doing designs with the intent of ‘losing’ some of the sashing by making it the same fabric as the block background.

Once again, making mistakes has lead to a new series of designs … or a new toy in my virtual sandpit!

I love the first design, and the second is interesting too.

    Oh those wonderful “mistakes”. I love the first design a lot and especially the look of the old cross-stitch from embroidery!
