In One Piece

Woo Hoo - I have a whole quilt top - my first ever!!! Well, kind of. I still have to do sashing. The pattern calls for about 6 more, with checkerboards and all kinds of stuff. Not sure I really want to do that much. And of course, I have that color challenge thing going on.

To back pedal a bit, When last I left you, my middle section was 1" shorter than the sides. I hemmed and hawed a bunch, but finally gave in and put Jack to work.

Here's Jack

I ended up detaching the center 4 blocks, removing the sashing and re-doing it to add 1/2" to the top and bottom. Then, I reassembled the middle section, and Voila!, everything matched.

Here it is:
