Repeating Fabrics and Woven Sashing
I do repeat fabrics in my Dear Jane quilt but I placed the "repeats" so they are not side-by-side . . . that is, until I discovered this as I joined Row I. Many times, I've fantasized making a DJ quilt entirely from one background fabric and 1-13 other fabrics with great fussy cut options. This might be as close as I get to executing that idea, since I decided to focus on finishing this quilt and do not plan to make a second DJ quilt.
BTW, this may be one of my best photos showing the woven sashing. It's so subtle; I'm hoping that the quilting will bring it out.
