Aspen Glow QAL - Sashing Blocks

Sponsored by: 

Welcome to the Aspen Glow quilt along!  Over the next three months, we'll be putting together quilts based on our popular Aspen Glow pattern.  Join us any time and share your photos in our Flickr Group to be entered into drawings for fabulous prizes!  You can access any of the previous posts on our QAL Information Page.
Ok - I'm totally cheating this week and combining our inner and outer sashing blocks post into a single post ... but these blocks are practically the same ... and if you're working on our wall-hanging size, you don't even have to make any Inner Sashing blocks!

These strips of blocks come together very easily - no seams or angles to line up!  If you have a few wonky blocks, just make sure that your strip has an overall straight-ish shape to avoid any puckers in your quilt top.

Be sure to share pictures of your quilt blocks and fabric choices in our Flickr Group and stop by and introduce yourself on our discussion board, if you haven't already!  Don't forget that sharing weekly photos enters you into our fabulous prize drawings.  Winners will be announced on 11/23!

If you have any questions or would like to share a blog post about your Aspen Glow project, just leave a comment below.  Happy sewing!

  1. So how do we enter for the prizes? I've been posting a pic on flickr of each group of blocks, is that all we have to do? I'm a little behind, too, and am working on getting the blocks together and the sashing started. We are leaving Monday to move out of our house in KY (Yay, we finally sold it!) and I'd LOVE to have the top together before we left. Are we still in the running for prizes if we don't get the entire top done?
