The entire time I was piecing my blocks together, I imagined having a light-coloured sashing to tie all my blocks together. When I went to the fabric store with a few of my blocks, it ended up being the navy polkadots that best complemented the wild array of fabrics.
What I enjoyed the most: Normally when I quilt, I am extremely particular with how and where I place the different fabrics in the quilt for a perfect balance of colour and pattern. With this quilt, I quickly realized that strategy had no benefit! There were too many different colours and patterns that it didn't matter where they went. I liked not having to think about it as I sewed and not having to hum and ha over the perfect layout for days on end.
