A lot of people commented on the sashing fabric I used between the blocks so here you can see what it looked like before fussy cutting the strips - the selvage reads Connecting Threads.
I pieced the back to make it a little more interesting - the blue fabric is from a nice 100% cotton thrift store shirt I found.
Right now I have this hanging on the inside of my front door. Somewhere in blogland I found this idea for displaying quilts by using a magnetic curtain rod. I found it at Walmart for around $7 and it works great on my metal door. It can accommodate different size quilts because it extends and retracts in the middle.
I use curtain rings to hang the quilt on it. I have another one of these rods that I intend to use on the door of the upright freezer downstairs in my laundry room some day to add a bit of color down there.
And since I'm in a 'blue' mood I thought I'd share this picture with you of a quilt block that I recently found at a thrift store for $1.25. It's all hand stitched and I assume it was made by a Hmong quilter. (You can read more about them here) I thought I'd use it as the center block in a small quilt and add other blocks and borders around it - might be interesting. The workmanship is incredible. I've pulled a few fabrics that I thought might work with it but most of them seem too yellow - think I'll have to go shopping at the store instead of my stash to find just the right colors.
