Sewing is such a pleasant and relaxing pastime. I'm sure it calms the brainwaves. It certainly calms mine. And straight line sewing is the most calming of all. Just enough concentration is needed (seam allowances/not sewing over fingers) that my brain is occupied but it's mindless enough that I can go into a 'power down' mode.
I've now sewn the sashing onto the blocks. I love how it makes the disappearing nine patch blocks pop.
There will be 4 rows of blocks with the white sashing and I'll do a white border for each side.
