I’ve been working this winter on Bonnie Hunter’s scrap quilt design, “Tumalo Trail.” If you’d like to read about the beginning of this project, type “Tumalo Trail” in the Search Box (in the upper right corner of this blog page) + Enter. I promised to solicit your opinions once I finished all 16 blocks, so here we are.
Some blog commenters suggested putting the quilt together without sashing. The layout below does look intriguing . . . but joining all the Nine Patches with seam allowances that don’t oppose would be a bear.
Some readers suggested multi-colored sashing strips. What do you think? I like the bright colors, but the multiple colors seems really busy to me. I’m looking at the sashing rather than the Nine Patches.
Red sashing would contrast well with the black print triangles.
Or, how about green? Green is a calmer color and allows the scraps of the Nine Patches to shine.
