picinic in the stars

so here it is, 23 star blocks from the block of the month star series from the quilt guild.
the top and bottom row are blocks that i had won (and the pink in the middle)
i was thinking that a black would make the stars pop out, but i didnt want it to dark...it's supposed to be a picnic quilt.
so i pilfered through my stash and figured i'd use up the rest of the light blue elvis fabric

and of course, this picture is sideways; top row is on the far right.

just need to add sashing on the top and side of quilt, sandwich and quilt it.
that's another delima i'm having...do i sandwich with cottom batting? or polyester? thick or thin? or just make it into a "summer quilt?"

  1. I do like the blue sashing you chose...like the sky! Enjoy your picnic quilt..I'd use thin cotton batting if you want to sit on it (or drape it around your shoulders when the wind comes up!).
