Scrappy Susannah quilt tops

Back at the beginning of September I had a tutorial here on my blog for a quilt block called the Scrappy Susannah. I’ve recently gotten some questions and emails about what a full quilt would look like. Well now that I’ve received all of the blocks from my Do. Good Stitches group, I can show you what it’s starting to look like!

First of all, here are all of the 12” blocks laid out randomly. The group members could choose to use either navy, royal blue, green or yellow for their blocks.

I’m still trying to decide if I want to add sashing between the blocks, which would look like this:

About mid-September, I pulled out all of my favorite navy blue prints and made this quilt top (it’s still waiting to be quilted). With this version I think I’m really liking the no sashing look.

And just to show you kind of a different look, here are the same Scrappy Susannah blocks but using the fabrics from Mirabelle (designed by Joanna Figueroa for Moda).

And then the same quilt, but without sashing.

And then here’s one more because I was curious what a Christmas version of Scrappy Susannah would look like! This one is made using Solstice by Kate Spain. And again, I think I prefer the no-sashing look. What do you think? Sashing or no sashing??
