Barrister's blocks!

Well!! I got the barrister's blocks all together now!!!  That sashing took a bit more piecing than I remembered, whew!!  What a wonderfully fun project Randy made for all of us, and I am so glad this is one piece. The border looks gray in the picture, but it is really darker, and I like that it fades into the background a little bit.   Rosie the poodle will not pose for me today, I think the flash is quite bright for her eyes. 


What now?  On with the Quiltville Mystery Quilt finale!!!


Hope you all have a super great day!!

Oh my! It may have been more work to do the sashing with the pieced cornerstones, but it makes an already beautiful quilt stunning!

Nancy said...

It looks fabulous, Julie. I can see why the sashing took so long after looking at a close-up of the quilt. It's not just pieced cornerstones but borders on all the blocks to get the cornerstones! But I think it was really worth it. (I hope you do, too.)

Gorgeous Gorgeous Gorgeous!!! - I always love that style of sashing but am generally outfaced by the amount of work - however it always looks so good - maybe I should use it on something and just grit my teeth until I've stitched it all
