Dolphin Signature quilt - horizontal rows
This is my first quilt using sashing and corner stones. I spent much of Saturday squaring blocks and constructing the rows. The next step will be to attempt to sew the rows together with matching corners.
I then pressed the narrow strips and realized that the 9 patch strips, which were not fully pressed, would be pressed to the same direction - so I repressed the strips in order to be able to butt the seams together when I join the entire top.
This particular top is providing a number of learning opportunities. And while it is not a part of the quilter's academy series, I'm not sure why there weren't any sashed quilts in Volume 1. I did read ahead to Volume 2 in order to make sure that I'm doing it correctly.
Dash kept me company too, but stuck to the floor for the most part. Though thankfully not underneath my chair.
