City Lights Quilt

Combine rectangles and dark sashing and borders to create a quilt design that resembles a skyscraper with windows aglow. To get variety from a single collection, cut stripes both lengthwise and crosswise. Fabrics are from the Kew Gardens collection by Laura Ashley for Quilting Treasures.
