Dogwood Blossoms

One of the projects for the Penny Sampler class was the Dogwood Blossom Quilt.

I continued on with the teal/navy/plum color scheme that I have been using for the Penny Sampler itself. I kinda love it. I finally finished all 80 petals with the sew turn method. Here they are, all pressed and beautiful (and stacked rather high).

I ordered the backing, but forgot the sashing. And then the company was like 'just kidding, we don't have that many consecutive yards'. Regardless, I am not sure which color to sash it in. Thoughts?

Or maybe something more subtle?

I can't wait to have it finished because I love how it is turning out!


  1. What a pretty stack of petals ! I think I may need to see a bit more to decide on sashing. How big are the blocks?

  2. I so love your colors, all your projects for this course are going to be stunning! I like the navy for sashing, but whatever you choose it'll be gorgeous!

  3. Oooh, that's hard. I think I favor the dark navy sashing, but I feel like I'd have to lay it out with a few to see.
