Among all the other things I currently have ongoing in the world of
crafts, I have started cutting the fabrics for a sampler quilt in
creams, tans, beiges, and browns that I will be making as a gift for a
friend. It'll be 30 different 12" blocks, in a 5x6 setting. So far I
have managed to figure out which blocks I want to use, I have cut out
the necessary templates, and I am slowly figuring out whihc fabric to
use in which block, in which combination. While on call last Tuesday,
I managed to cut all the pieces for 5 blocks. I have decided to use a
quilt as you go method (the more I use this, the more I like it!),
piecing each block and then quilting it before joining the blocks. So
now the only thing I really need to decide is whether or not I want
sashing between the blocks. A search for sampler quilt on google, has
come up with both variations. I can see both advantages and
disadvantages to the sashing.
What are your thoughts???
