Coming together!

    A while back, I made Fading Charms from Wedding Dress Blues. I love using the scraps and the clean look of Deanna's designs. I use Kona White but would love a white that did not ravel as much. Is there one out there? 
    I started, as my next scrap/leader-ender project, Film at Five by her also. I chipped away at it, as a leader-ender projects and lastly sewed all the sashing, some when I was traveling with the trusty Featherweight. Finally, I laid it out on the design wall. I sewed it together, column by column (9 of them) like Wanda taught me. This keeps everything in order. Then I split the web halfway down and sewed the bottom rows together. 
     All that waits is the top half rows and then sewing the two halves together. I love it! Takes all those disparate scraps and makes a beautiful quilt. In the big blocks, I did do a dark/light pattern and always had the corners in darks. I think it holds together better that way.

Bottom half sewn, top half webbed, rows need to be sewn.

Five is a better number to use for this. I used fours for the H2H challenge, and it is not good having the lights on the corners. Hard to see the pattern.
Love the color and the pattern. It's going to be a great quilt.

This is very attractive! I like the sashing a lot.
