I like this quilt on the left from the book I just got called Livin Large, by Heather Mulder Peterson. It is called Sunday Picnic. The book is based on precuts such as layer cakes, so the blocks start as 9 3/4" squares cut into triangles and sashing added. It is a nice sized throw.
Blues are very scarce in my stash although I think this dot will work well for the sashing. It is a bit of a sedate grouping so far and I will be looking for a lovely large scale print for the border and sashing squares. Perhaps I'll throw in some pink and green to liven it up. You like so far?
