Onward with Sabrina's quilt

In spite of my having awful allergies, I'm working on Sabrina's quilt.  I spread the blocks out on my bed to take this photo. All of the blocks are done, and this is the layout for them.  Now I need to decide on the color of the sashes.  I have to figure out how much fabric that will take, and find a nice piece of fabric in my stash.  I think that I need a medium to dark color.  I might use more than one fabric, too. The scrappy blocks will probably need to be trimmed on the sides of her name, I can just do that later.  I'm having such a good time planning and making these quilts.  I feel like a boat that is going out from the shore--I'm sailing further and further away from most of those quilts that I see illustrated in the quilting magazines that I subscribe to.

Wow, it's looking fabulous. I love her name on it. I wish I was brave enough to try that for my kids quilts.
