Here is the "Ocean Waves Jane" I am assembling right now. The blocks are from a Row Jane I participated in last year.

The bottom photo shows 4 different sashing blocks. I would ordinarily go with the one on the far left (dark blue and light blue) but Vickie suggested I try to add a bit more interest. The yellow that you see is a print with blue flowers.

I stopped by the shop this morning to show Vickie the blocks and to get assistance with the decision. As I was leaving I glanced at the 30% off bolts. There was the perfect backing and it was originally $5.99 a yard and I got 30% off of that price. There was just enough for the backing. Oh what a great find. I will post pictures tomorrow of the backing I bought today and a close-up of the yellow.

Let me know which block you think is best to use.


  1. I like all the sashing blocks. My favorite is the second row with the touch of yellow. Blue, Yellow and White are my favorite colors.

  2. Hi, Suze! This is going to be a wonderful quilt! And like Debbi I like them all, but I'm partial to the one on the left - where you have used the same fabrics as in the rest of the quilt. My option no.2 would be the second left, the one with just a touch of yellow. Best of luck making your decision :o)

  3. I can't wait to see the finished product. One day you will have to help me with an Ocean Waves quilt.


Thank you for your comment.......
