Def love the after pic...I like them both but the sashing quilted just completes it. Beautiful
I think it looks great - I think quilting the sashing helps to tame it...and gives some really interesting depth. :)
I like the quilted sashing better than not quilting it, however, I wonder if a different stitching pattern would help the individual blocks stand out more. The way you have it stitched now it is hard to tell where one block stops and the next starts. I definitely liked the sashing stitched though.
I prefer the unquilted sashings, as they better delineate the blocks. A different quilting pattern might do the same thing, though those sashings are rather small, so that might not be noticeable enough.
I like that it's all quilted. Even though the pieces are sooo small, it makes a difference!
The sashing stands out more if not quilted which makes the blocks show up better. How about a single line down the middle of each sashing piece to stabilize it and prevent waviness? I am following your progress closely as all my DJ blocks are done but I am paralyzed about sashing and quilting for fear of making a mess after all that work on the blocks. Good luck!
Oooo!!!! I definitely like the look of the quilted sashing better than the before picture. But I agree with Chay-- doing some straight lines would help to define the individual blocks better, I think... kind of like a frame. I need to work on my Jane!!! :)
wonderful little quilt, have now got the book but do not have a clue where I go from there. I am very new top quilting, meeting up with a friend at a show saturday who I hope can sort me out.
A completely different approach is getting a low loft batt i.e. Quilters Dream "Request" has a low loft.
I love it! I prefer the after one :))
