Now that I am within five blocks of completing my Jane Stickle triangles, I was faced with the decision about what to use for sashing and alternate triangles in the border. A friend invited me to accompany her on a visit to another quilt guild Monday and afterwards we made stops at two quilt shops.
This is what I selected. It is a dark blue floral batik that is a little less stark than a solid black, but close enough to black to serve as a neutral. From a distance is reads as a solid.
A cactus plant that we transplanted from the ranch decided to bloom this week.
