Congrats to everyone who has made it this far!
We have enjoyed putting this together so much! Please let us know if there is any types of patterns or techniques you would like to see in a future quilt along!
Both Amanda and I made throw sized quilts. As per the setting directions, the finished throw size quilt is set on point. For both quilt sizes, there are three different options for sashing and cornerstones: sashing without cornerstones, sashing with solid cornerstones, or sashing with paper pieced corner stones. Amanda and I both chose to sash our quilts with paper pieced corner stones (use up more of that scrap!!) but still end up with very different looks.
I chose to randomly piece my square-in-a-square-in-a-square cornerstone blocks color-wise using three different colors for each square. My inner border is a teal and lime print and my outer border is a tonal purple script print. I used the black background solid for my middle border.
I picked out a large scale floral print for my background from Jennifer Paganelli's Pretty Please line for my background and matched the seam up the middle because I'm a little OCD like that.
Amanda paper pieced square-in-a-square cornerstones and used the background fabric for the outer square so that it blends into the background. She used a red print for both the inner and outer borders and then used a peach for the middle border.
Amanda picked a peach tonal for her background and also made a simple star to use as a label on her quilt.
