Scrappy blocks with plain sashing


Hello again ladies, I thought you might like to see my friend Silve's scrappy quilt, made the same way as my "kitchen table" quilt. Silve decided to break up the riot of colour by using plain sashing in between the blocks, which were set in 4's.
In this photo it is up on her design wall, waiting for the borders.
Silve made the blocks in spare moments between other sewing projects, so I think she qualifies as a 15 minute player, don't you?

I should mention that Silve is 78 years young and "gave up" patchworking, until we met up and became friends last year. Since then we have inspired and encouraged each other and she is making more wonderful quilts again.
