Still loving the whites and lights



I decided not to chop up my 12 inch blocks and made strings and stars to sash the blocks with.  I think this photo is slightly brighter than the actual quilt but surprised how much colour is showing as all along I was worried that I had too much white and cream in the blocks.

The block pattern gives so much movement. I'm glad you decided not to cut them. The setting is great. I admire your speed at finishing, i always take so long.
