A Flimsy!

Oh My Goodness,  
I am just tickled pink with this flimsy!  What fun I had with this wall-hanging.  I loved every second. Loved picking out what block to make. Loved picking out what colors to use in the block. Loved picking out the barn colors. Loved picking out the sashing fabrics.  
I loved it all!!

Now, I have not trimmed it yet because I do not know if I should add a border? and what color binding?
Advice please!

Happy Sewing!

Here are my last three barns that I have made for Lori Holt's Quilty Barn Along.
They are yet to be trimmed!

Here is my layout.

I realized as I was working that I have hand pieced all of these blocks! So, I decided to continue and hand piece the sashing with some of my 

I love these fabrics, so bright, fun and happy. I hope to show you the flimsy in the beginning of the new year. Note, I said hope!!

Happy Sewing!

Must find scraps!

Thank you to Amanda Jean for allowing me to share this quilt.
