The Big One

This next project is based on a memory quilt, trophy quilt, man cave throw,etc.  The framed squares were finished earlier today and I still can't decide what sashing to use, real tree camo print, chambray, denim, etc.  Here are the blocks that I'm tweaking to determine what sashing to use. It took longer this week to cut up the thrifted plaid, flannel shirts and misc remnants and to dig thru my stash to finish out these blocks with more masculine plaids, flannels and of course real tree camo print.  I think the camo sashing is too busy but will spread out the squares with several sashing options when it's not 1:30am.  

I'm including these two choices in crazy mom quilts link to Finish up Friday projects. Let me know which sashing you like....thanks.

Hi Deanne,
I like the blue sashing as well. I have made one with the real tree print in the sashing and it will be the backing as a project to present to a local outfitters shop with the idea of providing custom/memory quilts using hunters/fishermen/outdoorsy old hunting, fishing, camping clothes in the quilt. That one is being quilted today. Then I will start on the quilt with the blue chambray sashing and may do the wonky star/chambray back.

Thanks for your comment,
