100th post

This is my 100th post. These are the blocks my Grandmother hand pieced. I went yesterday and bought the sashing material. Got it at 25% off.
Here is the finished top. I need borders, but need to see if I have some white to go with the white that is in the top. 2 inch sashing of the yellow a 1inch of the white and a 3 or 4 inches of the yellow I think.

The yellow made the colors brighten up a lot. Thought about hand quilting, but my Grandmother didn't make her seams all loose and they don't all go the same direction so pressing is impossible. So machine I think is the only other way to get it done. Didn't think I had enough to say for 100 posts but I made it. Here is to the next 100. Chris

Of course you have enough to say! I like seeing the yard and garden progress as well as the quilting. I think the top turned out great. You probably need the Kona snow which is a soft white to match the old blocks.
