Rainbow 9-Patch

I'm getting ready to finish up the top of my rainbow 9-patch quilt.
9-patch rows and sashing
I have all the white sashing and border strips cut. I just measured and cut the horizontal sashing and am going to start pinning (not my favorite, but it helps everything go together right) and sewing right away. This is the part that kind of takes a long time. Then I need to determine if I have enough 2.5" squares for the border, and if not, I'll need to pick some out of the leftover pile from the last quilt.

I think for this one, I will do an allover quilting pattern with white thread. I am going to do a new design though. I'll have to spend some time doodling and see what I come up with.

This is looking lively and pretty. What a handy way to lay out the strips till you are ready to assemble them.
