Introduction to our first quilt

In the autumn of 2016 we had enough completed panels to make our first quilt, and we learned how to put it together at a workshop led by Valerie of Daisy May.

This process is called sashing, and we used a fairly dark, neutral material which we thought would set off the variety of panels that were being made.

The next stage was the quilting, when the panels and sashing were attached to a layer of padding and a layer of backing material.
