Blogger showed me!!! But I'm back for now, so "WHEW!".
Yesterday and today I worked on making five more Jared Takes a Wife blocks. Then I laid the blocks on my bed to see if I had enough. I think I do. I'll need about a 12" border all the way around so once I get the sashing on, I'll have to see if I have to go fabric shopping. Until now, all of the blocks were from stash except for the sashing. But I'm not sure what will look good until the top is done.
My sister Isabel sent me a link to Holly Holderman's site so I thought I would share it too. If you go to her site, she has a Tip page and right here, and she gives a great tip on sashing. Now, I am not a perfectionist sewer so my blocks are not always the perfect size so I don't do as she says for cutting the fabric on grain. I need the stretch so I can ease in my blocks (sometimes). Other than that, I liked the idea. For my blocks, I put thin strips of painters tape on my ruler so I could mark the sashing strips with an erasable marker.
There were four places I wanted to make my marks so this is the view of the whole section.
