Design Wall Monday #23 - Sweet Treats

I have made some progress on my Sweet Treats quilt along, but not enough to start a new project (ie. the next Patchwork Times quilt along)! 
This is how my design wall looks today with two rows sewn together and another sashing row ready to join.


The cornerstones blocks aren't finished yet because I made a miscalculation on the size. 





I didn't like my first version, which as you can see, had a too large strip around a too small center square, and resulted in a sashing size that was too large.  I am cutting down the ones I have sewn and am much happier with how they look in the two rows that are sewn together. The dotty light sashing fabric is just perfect and the whole project cheers me up every time I have a chance to sew a little more on it.
Hop over to Patchwork Times to see more design walls.

This quilt exudes (I love that word) happiness! Very fun and cheery. We all need to work on something like this now and then even if brights aren't "our colors".

What a cute quilt! I'm not sure how you got the name "Sweet Treats" but it definitely reminds me of the sprinkles on top of cupcakes, ice cream etc. PERFECT name!

I like the second smaller version better too. I can visualize a black and white stripe running diagonally as your projects binding. Looking good Kathy!

Using dots for the sashing is such a fun idea. Your version of Sweet Treats is very sweet!
