Triple Play! Pieced Sashing from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

Pieced Sashing Triple Play with Natalie, Jenny, and Misty.

It started like any other Triple Play tutorial.

Jenny, Misty, and Natalie were each asked to design a quilt with pieced sashing. Simple, right?

Natalie created a cute arrow sashing with strip sets and hourglass blocks.

Misty used a traditional Seminole technique to sash her quilt with diamonds. And then, there was Jenny. (Oh, Jenny!)

Diamond Star Quilts - Book Review + Giveaway from Sew Preeti Quilts

For some time I had this voice inside me goading me, chiding me.
Shouldn't you try something more advanced?
Isn't it time to add to your skills?
How about attempting something that actually challenges you?

And every time I banished it. Shoo away.
It was comfortable. I am enjoying the popularity of the sisters, basking in the adulation of the Picket Star Blocks and relishing the warmth of comments for Mercyful Quilts.
