New Sashing Splendor Quilt Pattern

This month's Quilty Box was one of my favorites and filled with beautiful fabrics and fun quilting supplies picked by Jena Brandvig from Quilting in the Rain. I loved the fabrics Jena designed for the box which are delicate floral prints in light pink, blue, and green colors.

I instantly thought of picnics in the spring and bright sunshine on a crisp white quilt. I knew I wanted to use all eight fat quarters with white fabric to create a simple quilt.

Right now my favorite part of this quilt is the cheerful fabrics, but I know once I start quilting it, I'll love the big open blocks and cornerstones even more. This quilt is made for fun machine quilting and you could easily quilt a different design into each square. Contrast your thread slightly with a bright pink, blue, or green so you can see where you're quilting and keep track of which blocks you've filled.

If you subscribe to Quilty Box, you've probably already seen the sneak peek for next month. Yep! I've put together an awesome Quilty Box for you next month and we're going to not just piece the quilt, but also quilt it step-by-step together!

So if you'd like to join me in making a beautiful quilt next month, make sure to subscribe to Quilty Box today!

Let's go quilt,
