Summer Sampler Series Quilt Top

I finished my quilt top for the Summer Sampler Series! I took everyone’s advice and added sashing and cornerstones. As I was staring at my solids trying to figure out the right choice, my eyes settled on Free Spirit Designer Solids Nugray. I think it is a bit unexpected but added some balance to the beautiful bright colors of Pat Bravo’s Pure Elements. The cornerstones are fabrics from the blocks, tying the whole thing together. The sashing is 2″ wide and the cornerstones are 2″ squares. I can’t wait to quilt this and share the finished product with you!
