Description

I saw a quilt last night on Pinterest and fell in love with the chunky sashing. I got my colored pencils out and had fun "drafting it" just visualizing the fabric I was going to use. The tonight I revisited +True's "Elephant In The Room" quilt and realized it was the same design! And though I absolutely love the elephant fabric +True bought I promise to come up with something different. But thanks for the subconscious inspiration +True.

I spent last night trying to hunt down the quilt I saw on Pinterest. It must have been one of those triple click deals where I started on Pinterest but ended up on someone's blog. And silly me didn't bookmark it. Drats! It was so adorable. How big of squares are you making for your pieced sashing and how big is your focal block? I was thinking a 6.5" finished focal block, a .1/2" finished white photo frame with 2"squares making up the sashing. Of course I don't know if that will work out evenly yet soI might just need to go modern and vary the lengths of the sashing sqaures.

Terryt1955 I built it around the size of the elephants and then wanting to have sashing squares an easy measurement for cutting... so my focal block is 12.5" x12.5", my white strip is 1.5" and my sashing squares are 4". Those measurements include the seam allowance. So my quilt will end up 56" x 56" and will grow if I decide to add borders which right now I am not thinking of doing but that could change;-). I am thinking about maybe using the binding flange tutorial and have flange be white but will decide when get there!!
