I also cut a few squares of the dark turquoise solid for cornerstones, and then I laid everything out on the design wall to see if it would work. The sashing is 1.5 inches wide.
I stitched sashing to blocks and cornerstones, a block, and then a row at a time.
By Thursday, the center of the quilt was finished!
Considering that I'm a newbie to hand-piecing, I have to say I'm pretty happy with my stitches!
My slow-stitching job today is to finish up the outside borders and figure out how to piece a backing for this top, so that I can get it layered and begin quilting.
There is quite a bit of fabric leftover from the bundle of ocean-themed fat quarters that I started with, so I decided I would start cutting 4.5 inch squares from the scraps, border them with a variety of colorful solids, and make enough for a baby boy donation quilt!
