Sashed

I pieced the sashing on Monday evening then last night I began sewing the whole quilt together.  More to do but you can now see how the design comes together once you add the pieced sashing to the blocks. 


Kim Diehl, the designer of this quilt, called her version Twilight Hopscotch but I need a new name.  At the moment, I am partial to All Is Calm, though this does not need to be a Christmas quilt exclusively so maybe something else would be better.  What I mean is, do you have a suggestion?

I think All is Calm is perfect, even for a year-round quilt. Calm is a good thing. The green really makes for a serene look. It is really pretty!

I like your name and think it is quite fitting. Looks like the twilight and calm so think you have a winner with that.

Cathy, that is just beautiful. It comes together in such an interesting design with the sashing on. I think All is Calm is a lovely name too! Star of Wonder was a great suggestion too. How about Wintergreen?

It is a striking quilt. I think the name you came up with is great "All is Calm" is perfect for a seasonal quilt or a year round one. Radiant Star is a name that comes to my mind when I see the lines or rays of light coming outward from the stars. I believe a quilter should decide upon the name for a quilt they are keeping. If you aren't happy with All is Calm, then wait a bit and the right one will eventually come to you. It is a beautiful quilt & I really do love 2 color quilts now.
