Parcheesie sashed!

On the fence.

The neighbor’s clothesline.

In the house.

I love this quilt even more after being sashed and the top is not yet finished! I struggled to find a place to hang the quilt for photos, I didn’t have anyone around to help and wasn’t able to find a place high enough to hang!

I have yet to add two borders. I wasn’t able to find the Flora print I wanted,  as the pattern suggests so chose three prints from Birds and Berries — two for the sashing and one for the backing.

I now have two quilts to add borders to and sash, still waiting for the fabric for both! I can’t believe my Parcheesie quilt is pieced and I still don’t have my Spa backing yet! WTF Canada Post & USPS?! Ah well, I need a break anyway AND I’d like to use Superior Thread’s Kimono silk on both, can’t wait!

Today I’m linking up with The Needle and Thread Network and:

  1. This is beautiful! I thought the blocks were nice as you showed them in progress, but now — with sashing and border — it’s stunning! Great job.

    • Thanks Mary Ann, I agree, it does look like stained glass. I took photos later, of the quilt on the other side of the glass partition in ou house, perhaps I’ll post tomorrow (no promisses).

  4. Just stunning! I am at the moment working at a sampler quilt which each block measures 6 inches and I too was thinking of stitch on the ditch quilting because I don’t want to take a way the focus from the blocks. Great blog by the way and great advice in some of your posts. Thanks
