More progress

This is 56 out of 64 of the blocks. They are side by side and they are on top of a queen sized bed. They will need to be added onto for a full queen coverage. 

Here is a slate gray looking fabric that I auditioned to see if I liked the sashed look. It is a black fabric with a floral design in gray on it. 

This is a black prin t with brown and a touch of navy on it. I think I like the slate gray colored one. 

The other thing is I have plenty more to make a side by side one if I want to. I think I have still about 175 of the 9-patches made up. So a side by side one wouldn't be out of the question.

Tomorrow into Monday we are to get snow. They are saying 1-3 inches. It has been so cold it seems like winter is never going to leave, but next week the temps are to be in the 40's into the 60's which won't hurt my feelings any. 

I need to cut sashing strips for two quilts so I need to figure out dimensions and make sure I have enough before I start. 

Hope you have a great weekend. Chris

This winter is getting very old fast! I am so ready for warmer weather!!

I agree with your choice of using the slate grey for the sashing. It looks really nice with your blocks. =)
