Here's an explanation of what is lattice & cornerstones. See pic at bottom of page. Saves having to use large strips of fabric...and says it's easier to keep the quilt square...but I'm not certain about that...LOL

I like the lattice fabric, it goes really nicely with the blocks. As far as the cornerstones, I guess it depends if you want them to show or blend in. I'm trying to envision a white or cream, but when Lennie mentioned the orange, I thought, ooo, that'd be pretty. But again, depends on the look you want.

I pressed all my fabric scraps tonight, and packed them into a bin, I have 3 different quilt tops I want to work on, I was only going to work on two but I realized after pressing all these scraps, that I have quite a few strips, so I will have to create something with those.

I like the sashing fabric and the cornerstones would look good in either cream or burnt orange, possibly the black/dark fabric that frames each block. I wouldn't introduce another color though. JMHO

Exactly what I thought it was. I still think burnt orange is the way to go but I like vibrant colors. :D

IMHO, any color would be better than cream or white.. I like the more vivid colors.

Well I found some small pieces of some of the fabrics I used in the quilt. Placed them around auditioning them for the cornerstones. So far the rust/burnt orange (not bright orange) is winning...for now anyways.

And forgot to say that I've finished the two remaining :doh: applique blocks for the second BOM quilt I want to finish. So now I can work on both...and hopefully move them along to the finish line....

Well, no pictures yet, cause I haven't unpacked anything, but I quilted two small quilts and did 3 pieced scrap tops at the quilt retreat. Since it was my very first one, I wasn't quite sure what to expect. I have been to women's retreats before, but this was so weird, imagine 10 women in a room and no one talking, just the hum of machines. It was totally therapeutic, and wonderful and exhausting. Some of the work that the women were putting out was phenomenal, one of them is hoping to have one of her quilts accepted in the Houston show, and it is amazing. I will post some pictures this week, but for now, I'm just going to catch up on computer stuff and go to bed early again tonight, maybe tomorrow I'll be ready to do some more sewing! Some of the women sewed from 8 am Sat until 3:30am Sunday. I wasn't quite that diehard, but I did my share.
