The current oriental quilt top is all together.

030915  (875x1024)I don’t know the name of the block, so it was difficult coming up with a name for the quilt.  I finally decided on Oriental Tiles.  The top measures 58″ x 69″ – a nice lap size.

There were two pieces of fabric in consideration for the sashing and I picked the larger piece.  I didn’t do the math to figure out how much yardage would be needed for the sashing & border – I just started cutting.  Well, the quilting gods must have been smiling on me because once the top was finished all that was left was a strip 2″ wide by 12″.  Whew!

Now that this top is finished, it is time to do some machine quilting.  I plan to finish 3 or 4 tops this month – most of them on the smaller side.  The first one on the list is this top from 2013.

081813   (1018x1024)  It is 25″ square, so it should finish quickly.
