Sally Post in Pastel Colors

I have had the directions to make this quilt for a long time.
This is the year, I have decided,  to have it "started."
The pattern can be purchased from Sentimental Stitches. Below is the link and a photo of the original quilt.

Original Sally Post quilt
The directions come with patterns to make the blocks on point as the picture above, and also to make them straight as in regular rows.
I am making my blocks on point; but I want a wall hanging and not a bed quilt, so I will not make my  quilt top with the square in a square and sashing layout.
I have some ideas on how to finish this top; but it is too early and I know I will probably see something that might change my mind as I go.

 Preparing Sally Post blocks 
 In theory, I am preparing these blocks to take on a trip. But, in reality, I have already completed the applique on a few of them.
I am not trimming them to size, just doing the sewing and putting them away.
Because they are so small and fast to complete, I can't resist to just add one more stitch ^-^

  1. Your colors for the block are nice. Spring looking. I have the blocks made but they are much like the version in the Sentimental Quilts picture.


I'll do my best to answer all comments. Thank you
