So you know that I got 5 charm packs & several yards - one of which was the solid "Roche" for my Stacked Coins quilt.
On Monday, you saw the in progress shot of my coin sewing. Here is another on my Dining Room chair (Is anyone still wondering why I like this line?)
Those are my columns of coins. What's next? Cutting the solid sashing, right? Right.
Its a bit fuzzy, but you can see the brown "decoration" that is on purposely put about 1 inch from the selvage on an otherwise solid piece of yardage, right? WHAT THE HECK! (I saw some of this in my charms while sewing, but I thought that it was an error & I got a bad pack, oh well - Keep sewing.) The width of that brown "Decoration" (THAT no one mentioned, when advertising "SOLID" Roche) is about 1/4 of an inch, so I cut my selvage off right up to the dots. For the most part the brown "decoration" is in the seams. & Boy are they lucky that even with cutting more off of the selvage edge than anticipated I still had long enough strips with about 3/4 of an inch to spare.
O.K., so I went back to verify - they call it "Texture" not Solid. - YET Here is the description verbatim from the shop where I made my purchase:
Rouenneries by French General for Moda Fabrics
Inspired by vintage French textiles, Rouenneries is sophisticated and elegant! The color palette of faded reds, pearl and oyster offers the look of aged tapestry. This collection includes 36 pieces, and presents a wonderful array of large, medium and small scale florals along with coordinating solids. Surround yourself with the rich colors and prints straight from a beautiful French chateau! We also have the woven and silky companinion fabrics for this collection along with all the cut goods.
Never do they mention a Brown "Decoration" 1 inch in from the edges.
I eventually got the center portion sewn together:
& I am pretty happy with the randomness.
Onward to getting a top pieced:
As of right now, I have three borders attached - I just need to press the one on the side & attach the last side.
Now to purchase a bit of faded red for the binding.
Any ideas on quilting?
