A Little Room to Rest

I think the sashing strips give the blocks a little bit of space.  I don't have enough of a single green, so I'll have to mix is a bit of the slightly darker green that you see on the outer edge.  The inner bits are 1.5 inches and the wider outer part is 2 inches, so it isn't much, but I think it makes a big difference in the look of the quilt.  Kurt has taken the children off to the Art Festival and I elected to stay home alone.  It is the first chance I've had to sit quietly all weekend and I am relishing it.

I do like them better with the sashing.

It looks absolutely wonderful! Green and purple mixed is my favourite, too.

I like them better with the sashing too and it will make it alot easier to sew the blocks together. I am glad you are enjoying your "alone" time!

I love the purple and green combination too! Always have. Sure reminds me of Spring, and wild violets and new grass. And love the "mile a minute" and the sashing! Beautiful!
