I thought I had the blocks arranged so like fabrics wouldn't be next to each other but I see that didn't happen!
Here is a close up of the lovely pink border fabric and the dark brown sashing.
I decided to use civil war fabrics because I have a well filled tub of them. Originally I was going to use a variety of colors but decided to continue with the pink/brown combination when I saw how lovely they were looking.
An on point setting was used with 2" finished dark brown sashing in between the blocks. The pink cornerstone fabric I've had for years and there is still enough left for another project.
After the brown border was attached, the quilt started talking to me. She said she wanted the outside pink striped fabric to be mitered. Okay, I can do that. If you look closely, you can see part of the mitered corner in the picture below.
Then she started telling me how she wanted to be quilted, hand quilting of course with a outside feather border that has a scalloped edge! The churn dash blocks are supposed to be quilted in an overall design.
I asked how about long arm quilting with an overall Baptist Fan design? That suggestion was promptly refused.
So, that's the plan, hand quilting, outside feather border with a scalloped border. She did agree to waiting a year while I quilt another quilt that has been waiting longer, age before beauty you know. Of course I do need to finish hand quilting Welsh Beauty first.
This is why I've name this quilt, Churn Dash Diva. I've had other quilts talk to me before but never this demanding.
