I pressed the seam allowance towards the dark and cut the strips into 1 1/2" widths. Next, I stitched the pairs together.
I repeated these steps until, at the time of this post, I had finished all 97 sashings needed for this project!
In the beginning, I was concerned that I wouldn't have enough of the fabrics; but, I did. I even had about six inches left of each one!
Now, I'm auditioning fabrics for the cornerstones. Originally, I had planned to use this blue striped fabric with some of the cornerstones sporting a ring buoy. Well, the four blue squares didn't look that great. Drat, I actually have quite a bit of this fabric! Perhaps, it will become a border??
Neither did the dark blue squares "feel" to me like they should belong there.
So, I tried the red squares. Hmmmm. . . .maybe I need to try white??
