Once all four blocks for Say it with Flowers (this year's mystery button club quilt by Lynette Anderson Designs) were pressed and trimmed to size, it was time to add the sashing and borders. Firstly, a selection of 1.5" squares were cut and pieced together, pressing the seams open, and added to the blocks as sashing and an inner border...
...the outer borders were made of an assortment of 2" wide rectangles, pieced together. and added to both sides of the quilt, then the top and bottom. This is repeated and all the seams for the two rounds of the outer border have been pressed...
...and here's the quilt top, ready to be layered with wadding anad backing fabric then it can be quilted. I'm still deliberating over quilting designs and haven't decided yet whether to do this by hand or machine.
