A finish and Rouenneries Deux

To day I finished my  mini Tenessee Road quilt. I quilted it during the week and today I sewed the biding. It's finished!

I quilted it on my domestic sewing machine with flowers and loops. I'm still a free motion beginner so forgive me the imperfections.

Rounneries  Deux 

Fat Quarter Shop is sponsoring my blog and they sent me the most wonderful Rounneries Deux charm packs. The fabric is gorgeous. I loved it so much that I didn't want to cut into it. Then I decided I had to choose the right pattern to enhance the beauty of the line. After a lot of thinking I went for a quite simple pattern in order to show all the great prints instead of distracting ones eye with an intricate pattern. 

 After a couple of hours I already had made seven of these blocks The fabric is wonderful, smooth as silk but is doesn't fray or stretch. It was very easy to sew and to get all the seams to match. The quality of the material really matters.

 In the afternoon I couldn't stop and did more seven. This is how it looks so far 

Forgive me the poor light on the photos. I still use my bed as a design wall and the light is kind of yellowish.
What do you think, should I use sashing between the blocks or not? Please give me your kind advice.

Your mini quilt turned out really well, great for scraps....
The bowtie quilt (red) is very nice too, looking forward to see it complete.
