On the wall today.

I've just come back from staying with my friend Janie for a couple of days.  She is also a longarm quilter so we have a lot in common. We spent a delightful day sitting in her studio piecing, chatting, drinking coffee and eating cake, and one day with other longarm quilters (also chatting, drinking coffee and eating cake!!) at a quilt shop, Poppy Patch .  Janie and I try to get together a couple of times a year just to sit and sew and have our own little quilt retreat.  We decided to make a 'granny square' quilt.

I cut into the 'Apple of my eye' bundle that was sitting on my shelf. This is as far as I got...



I still have more blocks cut out ready to piece but I have been trying to decide whether to sash or not to sash?  I could just sew it together with no sashing as above or I can add sashing and cornerstones as below.

White sashing and spotty cornerstones or....


spotty sashing and white cornerstones? 



I think I am veering towards the white sashing.......Hmmm, choices choices.

Well, enough playtime, back to work!!
