A necessary purchase, there is nothing in my stash to sash/bind my 30's Rainbow Scrappy blocks. And I'm really wanting to get them done. I brought home 3 fabrics--one is short by about 2 inches. I'm auditioning the other two.
First--here's the original vintage quilt--
Here are the two prints I bought with the blocks next to them---
The left sashing is a floral/viney print. The right sashing is a small mostly blue all over print. I think both of these will work. (Remember--I have blocks for TWO quilts) But--I have a couple of others to show you---
The left sashing has blue/orange flowers on it. Too distinct I think. The right sashing is a light blue print on white. My blocks have all the same cream fabric in them--I think the white is distracting--need a cream/tan background in the sashing. I'm planning on 20 blocks in my quilts with sashing around all the blocks. Would make it come out to 87x111" which I think it a nice bed size. The colors are more distinct in my blocks since they haven't been used 60 years and I'm trying to allow for that. All but the last sashing have creamy backgrounds. Please give me your thoughts.
