Description

This will be the Christmas quilt made from all of my Newbee Hive #8 blocks!

9/23/14  A decision has been reached. I will NOT do sashing but will instead do a couple borders to make the quilt a bit bigger. Now to figure out what fabric to use!

Love the scrappy look of this

Emphill Me too! That's why I don't know if I should do sashing or not.

This looks great!!!
Hmmmm...Would sashing take away from the overall look or would it bring out each block more ?

sewcraftyjenn

libellenart That's the dilemma! The more I look at it, the more I'm thinking no sashing.

sewcraftyjenn , this is going to be marvelous! Having bee blocks to make your own quilt is such fun. I vote "no sashing". It has such a neat pattern when they join at each block.

Quilterinmotion Thanks for the input! I originally thought I'd want sashing to hide any points that don't quite meet up. You know how everyone has a slightly different 1/4" seem. :) But despite that, it looks like I can make it work without sashing! I just have to get the layout right.

It looks fabulous Jen.
I definitely think without sashing is best
