Layer Cake Quilt Along Deadline Today

joinforblogtour3 200 Spread the Word: 100 Blocks Volume 3 Blog Tour May 2 6*A brand new Quiltmaker's 100 blocks magazine is out!  I haven't had enough time to make good use of the last issue yet, but of course I'll buy the new one too. There is a blog tour to visit some of the block designers and win a copy of the magazine - check it out at the Quilty Pleasures blog. I LOVE their blog hops because there are so many great blogs to visit, patterns and quilt ideas to enjoy, and gifts to win.  Don't blame me for all the computer time you are going to enjoy this week!!
I have been working on my Layer Cake Quilt Along project because today is the deadline for submitting photos to the flickr group.  I was determined to not buy anything extra for this quilt (except the original layer cake) and picked out some B & W from my stash for sashing. After I had the sashings sewn in, I remembered that I wanted to do the sashing stars in the suggested layout. Why couldn't I remember that before I sewed it together?!?! What to do...leave it, or unsew the white sashing squares and insert the star pieces?
I have until the end of today to sort it out...the time deadline may make the decision for me!

  1. Wonderful work, Kathy! Your fabric choices are happy and fun. I love your redwork top, too. Mine are still sitting in a container "waiting for some attention" as you say. Your Kaleidoscope quilt is also a winner. How do you get so much done?

  2. I like the setting (it's just like mine--hehe)
    changing it up is your call of course, you could save the star sashing option for a future quilt.

  8. Don't know what you will decide, but I do like your design. Your black and white fabrics are perfect for your jelly roll. Good job of using what you have. Yes, I've been spending lots of time on the blog hop, but it's been so fun! Each 100 blocks issue has been better than the last. Can't wait to get this one!
