I purchased the sashing fabric for my Russian Doll Quilt a week ago and had a quick play with it. All the blocks are a different size as they have grown organically, so their "placement" will be random, not uniform, with different widths of sashing fabric between the blocks. I'm inspired by all the modern quilts such as those in Block Party of which I am the proud owner of!
The fabric is linen blend which I thinks complements the organicness of the blocks. The spots marry nicely with the doll's cheek (y) dots.
Another one of my years-in-the-making quilts is a tiny step closer to being finished.
I picked up three quilts from the machine quilter - I mentioned that already but here's a pic of my pile :) I will reveal more as time goes by. They are my black and white, kaffe fasset's floral parade and my flea market fancy quilts.
