Once I had all five rows sewn and had them up on the board, it occurred to me that the spacing between them added to the Asian look of the quilt. The indigo and white fabrics are from my Japanese and Indonesian collection and the light blue indigo is one of my hand-dyed fabrics.
So, I decided to add sashing between the rows. I've already cut the outer borders, but I wish I had made them wider. What do you think? The borders aren't sewn yet, so I may cut some wider ones (also, this photo is cropped a little, so check out the bottom photo).
Whew! High-use wall. I could barely squeeze the quilt onto the design wall.
