Baton Rouge Square with built in sashing

I have made no UFO progress this week. To see what others have done hop over to Susan's blog, Blackberry Creek Home Arts.

I did make progress on other things though. Yesterday I made my donation block for my guild's annual donation quilt to one of our local charities, La Puente. This block finishes at 14". The instructions call for the following fabrics: black solid, white solid, light greens (several fabrics), dark green, and medium blues (several fabrics). It is an interesting block since it includes sashing as well as the actual block.

Here is the block part of it.

And here is the block with sashing.

I like it!

I like it, too!

How interesting to have the pieced sashing bits attached to each block! This looks like a much better way to add sashing than sewing long pieced bits together until they're the full width or length of the quilt.

Hope we get to see the quilt make when all of the similar donation blocks are put together!

Very interesting! Can't wait to see how it looks together.

I made no UFO progress either, so I didn't post. I did make good UFO progress at my Friday Night Sew In, so at least I'll have something to report next week!
