Sashing done

I’ve finished the sashing for my Hop to It quilt.  Now for the borders.  I need to make more hourglass blocks.

I absolutely love this quilt!!!

I’m already starting to think of the quilting possibilities.  For one thing, I want something big in each green block.  Most probably, I’ll FMQ the flowers again, but in a different order.  With small feathers, mctavishing, butterflies, bees and flowers as filler.  I want the cats surrounded by garden.  I believe I’ll make strings of posies in the hourglasses.  As for the borders, I don’t know yet what I’ll FMQ there.  Gotta think on it.

Adorable quilt! I just love the cat blocks and a the pattern that is made by the sashing, I've never seen anything quite like that before.

Isn't it funny how some quilts tell you how to quilt them and others are mum on the subject?
