Terry's is Quilted and Keeping Gigi Warm

Austen Family Album 
by Terry at Honas52
90" square

Terry sashed 25 blocks and got this finished, bound
and shipped off to her granddaughter.

The yellow is all in the pieced sashing and the border and
goes great with her blocks in reds and blues.

It's a clever sashing

And this is as much as I can figure out.
UPDATE: See Terry's explanation in the comments.

What is she planning for her other set of Austen Family Album blocks?

  1. Wow, neat sashing! Well done, Terry!

  2. I think the sashing was made by putting a white HST between two yellow parallelograms, then sewing this unit to each side of the block, and finally sewing a larger white HST to each corner.

    1. Actually, I'm not that clever - I used a 2 1/2 x 4 1/2 rectangle, and attached two 2 1/2 x 6 1/2 at right angles using "stitch and flip" - attached all four to the block, trimmed the corners to 45 degrees and attached the four corner triangles - et voila!

    2. Terry that's exactly how I had it figured. Gorgeous quilt.

  3. Such a beautiful quilt.Congratulations!!
