Fussy Fairytales ~ sashing, check!

The sashing for joining the blocks of the Fussy Fairytales quilt is finished, and actually wasn't as tedious as I thought it would be. I used a lot of pins, which makes it take longer but in the end I think I achieved more accurate results than I sometimes do with sashing. 


Next comes the "floating blocks" border, which is in progress.....an easy strip piecing method, which makes things so much quicker!


And exciting news, I had my first Etsy sale this weekend!  And a quilt no less.  :)  My Cuzco baby quilt has sold to someone who is planning to use it for their new baby girl.  I am SO excited!!  Thanks to everyone who has been so encouraging in this little venture of mine.

I am a real pinner when it comes to putting things together - so annoying to do and when sewing - but so worth it in the end in terms of result!
